28. "Juneteenth" with Dr. Carey Latimore
In 2021, Juneteenth—also known as Emancipation Day or Freedom Day—became the United States federal holiday, but many are still unaware of its origins and significance in American history. On this special episode of VOICES’s Where Ya From? podcast, author and associate professor Dr. Carey Latimore shares with us the legacy of Juneteenth and the radical faith it still inspires today. Guest Bio: Carey H. Latimore IV serves as associate professor of history, co-director of the African American studies program at Trinity University, and associate pastor of a local church. Frequently asked to serve as a commentator and consultant on current topics such as race, land ownership, political identity, and religion for local and state media and organizations, he has also authored Unshakeable Faith: African American Stories of Redemption, Hope, and Community and The Role of Southern Free Blacks During the Civil War and appears in Our Daily Bread Media’s documentary film Juneteenth: Faith & Freedom. Dr. Latimore and his wife reside in San Antonio, Texas. Notes & Quotes: “I think Black people in their faith were kind of presenting a mirror and a window into the essence of the gospels that many people have forgotten or left behind.” “On Juneteenth, people start talking about what we can be, what we can do. What we have done. It’s an inspiring moment because we think of the possibilities.” “When one group becomes free, we all become freer.” “When those people came out of slavery at Juneteenth, we all came a little bit out of slavery. We all lost one link on that chain on our way towards a greater freedom, so that’s why we celebrate.” Links Mentioned: Visit our website to sign up for emails.

26. “Don’t Try to Figure Me Out” with Mali Music
People around us may think they know what’s best for our future, but in the end, it’s God’s plan that matters most. This is a truth Grammy-nominated and recording artist Mali Music learned at a young age, when he decided, against his family and community’s wishes, to pursue his passion for creating music. On this episode of the VOICES’s Where Ya From? podcast, the singer-songwriter details his childhood in the church, his boyhood pressures in athletics, and how he overcame criticism to chase his dreams.

His song “Beautiful” also made the Billboard charts and propelled him into the mainstream music industry. Notes & Quotes: “I loved falling into just the shadow of the Most High, like, disappearing in worship.” “I just never wanted the Word of God . . . to be detested or underestimated like I was . . . .” “You gotta trust God. And I just love that music is just gonna be connected to what God is doing.” Links Mentioned: Visit our website to sign up for emails.

24. "Finding God and Finding Your People" with Tedashii

24. "Finding God and Finding Your People" with Tedashii
We are all looking for a place to belong, whether it be in clubs at our schools or cliques at our workplaces. However, Texas-born rapper Tedashii knows firsthand that the “home-shaped holes” in our hearts are spaces that only God can truly fill. In this episode of Where Ya From? podcast from VOICES, Tedashii shares how Jesus took the passions that often made the artist stand out and turned them into a ministry and career. Guest Bio: Known for his distinct, deep voice and versatile flow, Texas-born rapper Tedashii made his debut in 2005 as a member of the 116 Clique, a hip-hop group associated with Reach Records. Since then, he’s gone on to an acclaimed solo career—his 2014 album Below Paradise even debuted at No. 17 on the Billboard 200s albums chart. More recently, he’s launched his first podcast: The Dash. Notes & Quotes: “All the while God was orchestrating the path, using football, using family, painful points, and moments in history to get me to this moment. Like I tell everybody, I went to Baylor to get saved, not to get a degree.” “It’s not enough that you get to run around and share the gospel with your friends. They can reject that. But when you make public stances, it draws a line in the sand.” “And now I think the music is both the thing that glorifies God and the way in which I choose to wield it is the thing that glorifies God.”  “Grief, in my opinion, is love persisting.” Links Mentioned: Visit our website to sign up for emails.

23. "Meeting Needs in the Midst of Chaos" with Todd and Beth Guckenberger
It’s often easier to run away from life’s greatest messes. However, Back2Back Ministries’ codirectors Todd and Beth Guckenberger are proof that we can often find our purpose in the chaos.

Todd and Beth also lead a family of 13, made up of 11 adoptive, biological, and fostered children. Notes & Quotes: “The majority of the way you share the gospel is not even always with words, and the words just sit on top of the actions.” “The world tells me I’m better because I was born into a biological family . . . . But that is not the way God sees things.” “God’s overwhelming love for us is not limited to us. It’s only limited because we don’t express it or share it or serve somebody.” Links Mentioned: Visit our website to sign up for emails.

22. "The First Lady of Reach Records" with Wande
It’s tempting to believe that our way is the only route to achieving our goals. However, Nigerian American hip-hop artist Wande has learned that when trusting God, He often delivers on our dreams in a way we couldn’t even fathom.

It’s not about you. It’s about His plans.” “I would definitely say I’m literally doing this because God told me to be here, and He’s opened all the doors necessary for me to do what I need to do.” “You’ll never understand what it’s like to see the Lord come through if you don’t trust Him to come through.” Links Mentioned: Visit our website to sign up for emails.

21. "Community Builds Up" with Lecrae
When we accomplish big things we often look back and realize we didn’t do it on our own. Whether it’s family members encouraging us or a whole community cheering us on, a few faces usually come to mind when we think about the path we take to reach success. On this episode of the VOICES’ Where Ya From? podcast, Grammy award–winning artist Lecrae joins host Rasool Berry once again. This time, Lecrae shares about specific people and his community that supported him throughout his life and career. Guest Bio: Lecrae Devaughn Moore—more commonly known as Lecrae—is an American Christian rapper, singer, songwriter, film and record producer, record executive, and actor. He has authored two books and been nominated for many awards, including seven Grammys. Lecrae partners with many nonprofits to care for his community. He is passionate about sharing his story of restoration to inspire others. He is a devoted Christian, husband, and father. Notes & Quotes: “The kingdom is really what we should be after, it’s kingdom over empire. Empire will crush you in order to win. Kingdom says, ‘How do we all thrive and paint a picture of thy kingdom come, thy will be done?’” “We wanted to give clarity that being unashamed of the gospel was not a self-righteous arrogant motto, it was more about being unashamed to be identified with a Savior who is gracious, loving, kind, gentle, understanding, empathetic.” “How do I celebrate this person for what they have instead of coveting the things that they have? How can I create opportunity and space? It’s just a sense of working together for something bigger and more eternal for a promised land that’s to come.” Links Mentioned: Visit our website to sign up for emails: whereyafrom.org Leave us a review: out our VOICES Collection from Our Daily Bread Ministries Follow Where Ya From? on Instagram: @whereyafrompodcast Lecrae’s website: Mentioned: Romans 1:16 Ecclesiastes 4:12 Learn more about your ad choices.

20. "Colorism, Microaggressions, and White Supremacy" with Ekemini Uwan
Everyone struggles with issues of identity. Maybe it’s the way we look or the amount of success we have achieved, but either way, the question “Who am I?” is fundamental. That’s why when we allow others or our culture to answer that question for us, it can lead to devastating consequences. In this episode of VOICES’ Where Ya From? podcast, Rasool speaks with theologian Ekemini Uwan and discovers how the ideology of white supremacy impacted not only the way she viewed herself but her relationship with Christ. Guest Bio: Ekemini Uwan is a public theologian and writer who has dedicated her life to combating racism and bringing awareness to the issues of colorism, microaggressions, and white supremacy. She is a host of Truth’s Table, a popular podcast for black women, and holds a Master of Divinity degree from Westminster Theological Seminary. Notes & Quotes: “I was able to endure because I knew the Lord. I knew He called me here.” “[Microaggressions] are little racial digs (i.e., ‘You’re pretty for a dark girl’) and you leave that person’s presence with internal bleeding.” “So I was praying, praying, asking the Lord, ‘What’s going on? What is the deal?’ And I just sensed that the Lord was saying, ‘Ministry.’” “Colorism is where people with lighter skin are given preferential treatment over those with darker skin.” “We don’t ever have a space, particularly as black women, that’s just for us.” Links Mentioned: Visit our website to sign up for emails: whereyafrom.org Leave us a review: out our VOICES Collection from Our Daily Bread Ministries Follow Where Ya From? on Instagram: @whereyafrompodcast Ekemini Uwan’s website: podcast: Truth’s Table Additional resource: IPOJ South Africa episode Learn more about your ad choices.

He says, ‘Where you are weak, I am strong.’” “I just want to say to be big, bold, and beautiful and owning the woman or the man that God has called you to be.

18: "Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion" with Skot Welch
Great minds think alike, or so we’ve been told, but what if different minds help to build better communities, better companies, and even better churches? In this episode of VOICES’ Where Ya From? podcast, international business consultant Skot Welch discusses diversity, equity, and inclusion and shares his passion for creating communities that reflect the diversity that God designed. Guest Bio: Skot Welch is the president and founder of Global Bridgebuilders, a results-focused firm pioneering diversity and inclusion initiatives to a wide range of Fortune 500 clients in the United States and across the globe. He is also the author of 101 Ways to Enjoy the Mosaic: Creating a Diverse Community Right in Your Own Backyard, the coauthor of Plantation Jesus: Race, Faith, and a New Way Forward, and the founder of The Mosaic Film Experience, an educational platform that empowers underserved youth through digital storytelling. Skot and his wife, Barbara, reside in Michigan and have two children. Notes & Quotes: “When you have people that are different, you actually have innovation that is stronger, higher . . . . And there’s books written about it. Now, there’s studies on it. Heterogeneous groups are more innovative.” “God loves His mosaic. He didn’t make any of us to be the same. There’s seven and a half billion of us, and yet not even identical twins are alike.” Why don’t we just understand each other’s stories? It makes God smile. He didn’t leave it as an option. He gave it as a commandment, by the way, it’s not optional. We need to get along and we need to act like family. So let’s have the hard conversations. Let’s do the work.

17. "The Bible and Social Justice" with Dr. Esau McCaulley
Is God only concerned with saving souls? Or does He care about both the spiritual and physical well-being of humanity? In this episode of VOICES’ Where Ya From? podcast, Dr. Esau McCaulley shares his origin story with Rasool and outlines what the Bible has to say about being socially active and pursuing justice. Guest Bio: Rev. Esau McCaulley, PhD, is an assistant professor of New Testament at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. He is the author of Sharing in the Son’s Inheritance and Christianity Today’s book of the year, Reading While Black: African American Biblical Interpretation as an Exercise in Hope. Esau’s writings have appeared in the Washington Post, The Religious New Service, and Christianity Today, and he is also a contributing opinion writer for the New York Times. Esau is married to Mandy, a pediatrician and Navy reservist. Together, they have four wonderful children. Notes & Quotes: “What happens when you’ve received everything that you want, but it’s not sufficient to bring you joy?” “I wanted to write something that’s going to inspire African American Christians to continue to see in the text of the Old and New Testament, hope. Because I think that’s what’s marked the African American Christian tradition throughout all of our history, right? That we looked in these texts and we saw in them a God who loved us.” “It is simply exegetically dishonest to say that you can get from one end of the Old Testament to the New Testament and not see some engagement of Christians in the public square.” Links Mentioned: Visit our website to sign up for emails: whereyafrom.org Leave us a review: out our Voices Collection from Our Daily Bread Ministries Follow Where Ya From? on Instagram: @whereyafrompodcast Dr. Esau’s bio:   Dr. Esau’s book: Reading While Black Extra resource: This Far by Faith reading plan Verses Mentioned: Romans 14:13–23 “Don’t cause another Christian to stumble.” Isaiah 5:6–11 Isaiah 58 and 61 quoted by Jesus in Luke 4 Luke 1:46–55 “the Magnificat” Revelation 17 “Babylon the prostitute” 1 Timothy 1 and 2 Deuteronomy 15:18 Learn more about your ad choices.

16. "Intersection of Faith and Culture" with Dr. A.R. Bernard
In this episode of VOICES’ Where Ya From? podcast, Dr. A.R. Bernard teaches us that there are no small churches or small impact—just small thinking. Learn how God took A.R.’s four-member, store-front church and expanded it to the Christian Culture Center and understand that we all can make positive change in our communities by being faithful to whatever plan the Lord has in store for us. Guest Bio: A graduate of Alliance Theological Seminary, Dr. A.R. Bernard is a visionary whose teachings have lifted his church, the Christian Cultural Center (CCC), to become New York’s largest house of worship. In addition, he has been awarded Honorary Doctor of Divinity degrees from Wagner College and from Nyack College/Alliance Theological Seminary. His wife, Karen, left her career with the Queens County Supreme Court to raise seven sons and copastor with her husband. Together, they have successfully experienced 48 years of marriage and 42 years of ministry. Notes & Quotes: “Essentially, culture is man’s attempts to order his society and determine the best ways to live in it. Now contrast that to the kingdom of God, which is the reign and rule of God or the government of God or God’s way of doing and being, which [also] means a culture.” “God’s presence has to be present within the culture in order to affect change.” “What makes us different? Our Christian identity. What does that mean? Secondly, how far do we adjust to the culture without compromising our Christian convictions? How far do we blend into the culture without losing our Christian identity?” “There are no small churches or small projects. There’s only small thinking.” “We live life on levels, we arrive in stages. Begin where you are, and build upon that.” Links Mentioned: Visit our website to sign up for emails: whereyafrom.org Leave us a review: out our Voices Collection from Our Daily Bread Ministries Follow Where Ya From? on Instagram: @whereyafrompodcast Extra resource: This Far by Faith reading plan A.R.

15. "Building Bridges Between Cultures" with Rasool Berry

15. "Building Bridges Between Cultures" with Rasool Berry
When two worlds, cultures, or concepts collide, what happens? Often, there’s a sense of conflict. But what if, instead of facing these collisions with conflict, we met them with a willingness to understand? In this episode of Where Ya From?, Rasool Berry shares his own story of faith, culture, and identity. Listen as we discuss his experience of growing up in Philly and going to boarding school, his feelings of rejection and realizations of forgiveness, and how authors like Harriet Jacobs, Frederick Douglass, and Malcolm X inspired his identity and journey of faith. Guest Bio Rasool Berry’s name (meaning “messenger” in Arabic) reflects who he is and what he is passionate about: impacting young adults through translating spiritual truths from Scripture into the language and ethos of our time. Rasool serves as teaching pastor at The Bridge Church in Brooklyn, New York, and he is also the director of partnerships and content development with Our Daily Bread Ministries. Rasool graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a bachelor’s degree in Africana studies and sociology. He is committed to helping people live out a biblical framework for social justice. He hosted the travel documentary series In Pursuit of Jesus, where he journeyed across five continents exploring what he can learn about Jesus through others. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife, Tamica, and their daughter Ire’Ana, and he hosts the Where Ya From? podcast. Notes and Quotes: “Because of civil rights activists, Martin Luther King Jr. actually came to the school to call for its desegregation. It was finally desegregated, and so I ended up going and enrolling as a fourth grader in a boarding school in North Philly.” “Very early on, I was an outsider. And that really shaped a lot of who I became as a person because nothing came easy. I wasn’t athletic. I wasn’t cool. I was not smooth at that point. And there was nothing about me that drew people to me. And so I found myself on the outside looking in, and that was tough. But it was also something that over time kind of caused me to be more observant about people and curious about people because I was kind of observing a lot.” “I decided to just confess to the other girl that I had cheated. I was searching and trying to find a sense of how I could even, not just be the lowest piece of scum on her face of the planet, I guess. I didn’t want to live with the secret anymore. So I just confessed, fully expecting to get another well deserved tirade about how bad I was. And she said, ‘I forgive you.’ And I was like, ‘What?’ And she was like, ‘I forgive you.’ And I said, ‘Why?’ I had no frame of reference for it. And she said, ‘Well, Jesus has forgiven me for everything that I’ve done. So I don’t think I should hold this against you.’” “Sometimes there’s this tendency to just say, ‘Oh, we should just forgive everything and forget.’ And it’s like, well, forgiveness is a huge part, but there’s also, ‘We need to speak the truth.’” Links Mentioned In Show:  Leave us a review here:  Pursuit of Jesus: Available now on YouTube at   Follow Where Ya From?
