Covid-19 isn't "the great equalizer" – except when it comes to making us need our devices more than ever. Screens have revealed superstars as civilians, and turned sitcom grouches into teddy bears. Basically: We’re ready to be more open with one another.

Spiritual Warriors | Day 14 | Richard Allen
Our lives are boundless. I know it. I pray that we break free of the bondage of limiting thoughts.  And dream of all possibilities ...of our highest callings.  Divine assignments.  Wildest, most audacious dreams. "I'm calling you higher.  There is more that I require of thee. Will your heart and soul say yes?  I'm calling you out of your dry places. Come on up a little higher. I predestined you before the world began.  Will your heart and soul say yes?" (Such a powerful song and 14-minute morning meditation by Shekinah Glory.) *Spiritual Warrior of the Day:* Richard Allen said yes. “The bands of bondage were so strong that no way appeared for my release: yet at times a hope arose in my heart that a way would open for it.” Even as an enslaved man, he said yes. He worked tirelessly, paid the price for his own freedom, bought land for his dream, and in 1794, built the African Methodist Episcopal Church (AME). It would become the first independent black denomination in the United States. He didn't stop there.  He founded The Free Africa Society, protested the use of slave labor, radically organized Black dollars, taught literacy, and organized politically. He is our "Founding Father" and today we honor his life. About the calling on his life, Richard Allen said this. "I didn't accept it. I received it." It's time to say yes y'all.
