We had a church packed with people women men young people and children. p\The congregation was touched with the power point presentation on Suriname. The comments by most were that they feel like bein...g in Suriname. Well done by the host and one high light was dramatizing the rainbow colours for climate change which gave us hope if we treasure God's creation and look after it. The wdp in the Cook Islands is growing. Thanks be to God's. See More

Our service was neally cancelled due to very heavy snow. Thankfully we went ahead in Kenilworth Warwickshire England UK. It was a beautiful service and the hymns wonderful. Gave us a lot to talk about... and to think about. Thank you all. Our school children's choir couldn't get as all the schools were closed which was sad. See More

From our sisters in Slovenia! A #WDP2018 service in the city of Murska Sobota was briefly broadcast on Slovene TV. It was such an honor!

The service can be seen within the first few minutes of the video shared on the RTV Slovenia website. The rest of the video focuses on a discussion among women about women's spirituality. Sister Meta from a WDP group in Maribor joins in.

Moški in ženske se med seboj razlikujemo. Drugače gledamo na svet, starševstvo, kariero, prijateljstvo. Pa drugače gledamo tudi na duhovnost? Sodeč po znanstvenih dognanjih, da. Ženska duhovnost torej obstaja. Osnovno izhodišče zanjo je model feminizacije, kot etizacije sveta, ki svet počl...

Philippa Martin to World Day of Prayer - International Committee

Women's World Day of Prayer, 2nd March 2018 @ St. Dunstan's Church, Ashurst Wood, Sussex, England. Thank you!

The Commission on the Status of Women starts today at the United Nations headquarters in New York. Women of faith are present to affirm the rights of women and girls and to advocate for the Sustainable Development Goals. Let’s send our prayers to them!

The theme of this Commission is “Empowering Rural Women and Girls.” It reminds us of the theme for WDP 2018, “All God’s Creation is Very Good.” Women and girls are part of God’s Creation and those living and working in the rural areas of the world are more likely to be negatively impacted by climate change, land grabbing, forced migration and economic inequalities.

"Gottes Schöpfung ist sehr gut!"
Weltgebetstag Surinam in der Apostelkirche
Über Konfessions- und Ländergrenzen hinweg engagieren sich christliche Frauen beim W...eltgebetstag dafür, dass Frauen und Mädchen überall auf der Welt in Frieden, Gerechtigkeit und Würde leben können. Der Weltgebetstag am 2. März 2018 stellte das Land Surinam in den Mittelpunkt. Die Liturgie zum Gottesdienst haben Frauen aus dem kleinsten Land in Südamerika verfasst.
Das Thema „Gottes Schöpfung ist sehr gut!“ passt wunderbar zu Surinam. Auf engstem Raum existiert eine ausgesprochen reichhaltige Flora und Fauna; mehr als 80 % des Landes sind mit Regenwald bedeckt. Es gibt über tausend Baumarten und die Tierwelt ist vielfältig und bunt.
Auch die Bevölkerung steht für Vielfalt und Kulturreichtum. Die 550.000 Einwohner leben als Christen, Hindus und Muslime friedlich zusammen. Sie feiern alle religiösen Feste gemeinsam. Sie haben Wurzeln in Südamerika, Afrika, Europa und Asien. Das Land war früher niederländische Kolonie.
Aber auch die Wunden, die durch die Gold-, Bauxit- und Tropenholzgewinnung entstanden sind, sind nicht zu übersehen.
Die Bewahrung der Schöpfung ist deshalb ein zentrales Anliegen des Gottesdienstes. Die Frauen rufen zu Umweltschutz und nachhaltiger Lebensweise auf.
In Wesseling haben wieder Frauen aller Konfessionen eine schöne Veranstaltung mit viel Herzblut gestaltet - dieses Mal in der evangelischen Apostelkirche. Viele wunderschöne und positive Lieder aus Surinam wurden gemeinsam gesungen, unterstützt vom Chor Intermezzo unter Leitung von Ursula Papon. Beeindruckend auch die Predigt von Monika Engels-Welter, die besonders das friedliche Zusammenleben ganz verschiedener Kulturen als beispielhaft herausstellte, aber auch an jeden einzelnen appellierte, nicht auf "die da oben" zu warten, sondern selbst etwas Positives zu bewirken. Im Anschluss konnten die Teilnehmer im Begegnungszentrum noch etwas zusammensitzen und sowohl süße als auch pikante Speisen aus Surinam und Ingwerbier probieren.
Das ausdrucksstarke Titelbild stammt von der surinamischen Künstlerin Sri Irodikromo und hat den Titel „In Dankbarkeit der Mutter Erde“.
