Texas

It is always good to gather with friends and acquaintances under the banner of WFWP. Saturday, November 4, when we celebrated the 25th Anniversary, was no exception. It seemed that God was working to assemble good women of the community at this event. I was deeply touched during the Bridge of Peace Ceremony when I realized that my “sister” (the woman with whom I was paired to cross the bridge) was Mrs. Helen Jackson, a Herstory Award winner. Helen is a woman in her 90s whom I’ve met several times in the past. What struck my heart on November 4th was that Helen is, no doubt, the descendant of slaves, while I am a descendant of at least one slave owner here in Texas. My grandfather’s grandfather came to Texas…
On September 29th and 30th, WFWP Texas decided to promote their activities at a local festival called “Western Days Festival” in the city of Lewisville. It was a great opportunity to expose WFWP to the public. We used the event to ask for donations for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. One Japanese WFWP member suggested that they make origami to attract people and give them out as a “thank you” to those who give a donation. She was able to mobilize several of her friends to make enough origami to fill a basket at our table The festival opened at 5 PM on September 29 with loud music, entertainment, and food. The next day, the festival opened at 9 AM. It started with a huge, beautiful parade, to show off…
On April 22, 2017 the Dallas, Texas Chapter of WFWP held an event that had been in the making for some time. The topic was “Come and Discover the Bridge of Peace.” The invitational flier stated that we would “discuss strategies to introduce the Bridge of Peace to our community” so that new friends would come prepared to participate. Sixteen ladies took part in our discussion, five of whom were new to WFWP.I gave an overview of some areas of the work of WFWP worldwide and nationwide with the focus on the “Bridge of Peace” and its history, and  then showed a brief video on the Bridge of Peace. The ladies who had never heard or seen a Bridge of Peace Ceremony were deeply moved. I then I asked the…
On Sunday, October 16, 2016 the Dallas, Texas Chapter of WFWP celebrated an unprecedented event at the Dallas Family Church. After I offered a short sermon during the regularly scheduled Sunday service, the church congregation joined together in a church-level bridge crossing ceremony. It was an event in the making ever since I attended the national WFWP retreat in July in Tampa, Florida. There we had taken part in a Bridge of Peace ceremony among the participants there, mainly chairwomen from around the United States. From that very day, I couldn't stop dreaming about having a district level bridge ceremony here in Dallas. Many things delayed our event, but finally, together with pastor for the Dallas Family Church, Rev John Jackson, we decided on a date, and we began preparations.We…

Serving Mother Earth

October 31st, 2016
Saturday, September 24 was National Public Lands Day, and Texans came out in full force to support the cause! Members of the Dallas, Texas Chapter of WFWP joined hundreds of other volunteers to attend our Mother Earth, cleaning and collecting garbage and recyclables from one of Irving's city parks.So many people came, especially young people from all over the city. It was a moving scene and a testimony that people really care about our environment. We were very happy to participate; and, at the end, we shared lunch and each received a free mug and a bag of goodies. In all, it was a beautiful experience with young and old, working together to serve our Mother Earth.
