Prayer Edition | Day 15 | Stevie Wonder
“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!

Saying Goodbye to Season 5
On November 13th, 2019, we started Season 5 of this podcast. Our definition of "season" has pretty much always just meant as many episodes as we can make before we need a break, and we haven't really taken a break since last November. This episode, the 23rd of the season is admittedly a bit of self-referential navel gazing, but I wanted to take just a bit of your time to wrap up the season before we, finally, take a break. It is an all-volunteer team that helps put these episodes together. From Molly, who makes our transcripts, to Courtney Epton, who has done all the visuals to promote these episodes, to Ali, Bridget, Anna, Susan and others, who provide feedback, and help me think through these topics, this podcast wouldn't be what it is without the entire team. And that team deserves a break. If you are able, we'd be eternally grateful for your financial support, by joining our Patreon, or going to the Integrated Schools website and clicking "donate." While we're away, please check out past episodes, if you haven't yet, and stay in touch on social media or by sending us an email. And please, VOTE!!

She is the family griot, the holder of truth, and the one who inspires so much of my work as a Hoodoo. I learned some powerful family history and stories (right alongside you) in this interview. We talked about being descended from greatness and the resilience we can all pull from our ancestors, regardless of our religious beliefs (cause she is a devout Christian ya’ll).
