Wouldn't Take Nothing for My Journey Now...


PEORIA – The Illinois Great Rivers Conference honored 21 pastors who are entering retired relationship Thursday morning.

Utilizing the song made famous by the gospel group, the Happy Goodman Family, Wouldn’t Take Nothin’ for My Journey Now, Rev. Lou Zuck, one of the retirees from the Class of 2013, used video segments from 17 of his colleagues to amplify the song’s key messages:
  • I started out traveling for the Lord many years ago
  • I've had a lot of heartaches, had a lot of griefs and woes.
  • There's nothing in this world that can ever take the place of God's Love
  • I can say, "Thank the Lord, I wouldn't take nothing for my journey now.”
The video segments shared experiences of the ministerial journey. “Ultimately, God’s love allows us to make and complete the journey,” Zuck said.

Videos of the retirees will be uploaded in the next few weeks onto the IGRC website and will be able to be found at www.igrc.org/galleries/category/50.
