Earlier this year, Earvin “Magic” Johnson left his job with the NBA so that he could dedicate more time to serving both his church and his community.
In a recent post to Twitter, Johnson shared that a visiting bishop to his church gave an encouraging message about God’s calling that touched both Johnson and his wife.
“Cookie and I enjoyed a powerful message from Visiting Bishop Porter about God’s plan for us,” Johnson wrote. “We have to work toward his plan and have faith that he will bring it to pass. Have a happy Sunday!”
Twenty years ago, Cookie, Magic Johnson’s wife, started attending the West Angeles Church of God in Christ in L.A, where Johnson joined her shortly after. The two have been attending the church ever since.
Johnson recently shared with the Associated Press how the church, led by Bishop Charles E. Blake, has been able to accomplish so much as a community.
