Practicing social distancing etiquette, a small group of women came together Monday in Lake Highlands for lunch, fellowship and prayer.
Having developed close friendships at their church years ago, the women have served together in numerous charitable and outreach endeavors over the years that included supporting Austin Street Center, Juliette Fowler Communities, Genesis Women’s Shelter, North Dallas Shared Ministries and more. As Dallas began reopening, following the pandemic lock down, plus the addition of last week’s sad events, it was a perfect time to gather for lunch and conversation.
Valda Dracopoulos led the small group in a beautiful, tear-felt, prayer. Referencing Matthew 18:20, “when two or more have gathered in my name, I am in their midst” she asked that God hear our small number of voices and heal our world.
The lunch was co-hosted by Lake Highland’s resident Becky Riggins and former Dallas resident, Shelia Huffman who was visiting from Midland.
