Documenting the history of TLWF

Hello!

Like many people have posted here I grew up in "The Walk." I am the product of an arranged marriage which led to pretty disastrous results. I grew up moving up the west coast and as result attended services in a variety of locations (South Gate, Grants Pass, Portland (Lake Oswego), Seattle, Yakima). I am interested in documenting, or contributing to, a more thorough history of TLWF. Is anyone aware of work like this being done? Is anyone willing to share their stories. I currently live in the northwest but plan to travel to southern California once this pandemic is over to be available to meet with people in person and record their stories.

My is to provide a fact based coherent narrative to the events while also sharing the stories of those impacted.

Stay safe in these crazy times.

Welcome to the conversation. I have been a contributor to the main TheWalk/TLW forum above for many years. I would be happy to share anything you want.

What years covers the locations listed above? I put in 35 from Hawaii to DC and other places in between.

In addition to the Woodrow Nichols expose covering years up to 1980, there has been a Kelly Daniels book and an Andrew Marzoni article, the links which may be found on the FB Further Discussions page.

You can find 100's of stories over on the forum list under The Living Word Fellowship, The Walk, John Robert Stevens about 15 years, 1155 pages worth, Over 2 million views. Lots of first hand fact based accounts there.

Actually now that I think back yes, some guy named Richar' Farr wanted to do a "fact based" movie about the Walk and JRS and some blathering about Yoko Ono and Tony Cox. As far as I know it went nowhere because as a people that were exploited by the Walk many of us had no interest be being exploited again and that was 7 years ago I doubt that much has changed in that regard.
