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.
The theme of marriage and family is as inspiring as it is universal. We, in the Dallas Chapter of WFWP, have confidence that championing that theme will allow us to bring many people together beyond racial and religious differences and to uplift the grand design of our Creator, as recognized by people from all faiths and walks of life. On Saturday, May 7, WFWP Dallas held a simple but lovely celebration of marriage and family in one of the fellowship rooms of the Garden Ridge Church of Christ. Golden tablecloths with floral centerpieces adorned the tables to create a beautiful celebratory atmosphere to welcome the participants. Bountiful food and tasty drinks awaited the guests as well. Prior to that day, we had gone door to door in the neighborhoods near…
