44 min

“Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit” says the Lord. - Zechariah 4:6

Many of you are lacking strength right now. Many of you are in a place of weariness and feeling battered by the battle, but don’t give up!  We’re coming on today’s walk to remind you of where your power and strength come from. It’s time to worship. It’s time to laugh. It’s to celebrate that we have made it through the week! It’s time to have your vision renewed and the weariness break off. You are walking into a new season of your life. Trust that feeling and keep moving.
 
Spiritual Warrior of the Day:

Turn on your favorite Stevie Wonder song because it’s time to shift the atmosphere! This man has given us a lifetime of hits. He’s created a soundtrack to the Black experience that is so lush and full of funk and dripping with pride that it will never go out of style. And he did it all while proving to us that vision – the ability to really see – comes from God.

And, boy does Stevie really see us.

His music is a reflection of our beauty and pain, pushing us to believe in new possibilities. His songs are a conduit for joy, healing, and love. Just playing one of his songs can transform the energy of any person, room, or experience. That’s how much of a spiritual warrior Stevie is.

On today’s walk, we will dive into the magical story of his life and the making of his masterpieces. We will learn how God talked to him and guided him each step of the way. We will learn how he was willing to walk away from it all, at the height of his career, to serve the higher calling that God placed in him. And we walk down memory lane, remembering all the ways in which Stevie’s music has personally influenced our lives.

This is going to a be pavement party like no other. Put your good headphones on. Turn the volume all the way up. It’s going to the livest walk and talk, yet!

Remember When We Caught The Spirit? (feat. Pastor Shirley Caesar and Ashon Crawley)
Can You Hear It? I Know You Caught The Spirit This week, Josh and Tracy are taking you to church. First, they talk about their time in the pews, from the ways they've had to reconcile their faiths and identities to the music that has stuck with them. They hear about the deep, poetic roots of Gospel in Black identity from writer and professor Ashon Crawley. And they sit down with pastor and legend Shirley Caesar to talk about her reverence for the music, her unforgettable “greens, beans, potatoes, tomatoes” meme, and the importance of finding joy right now.
