Rev. Bob Gamble to Visit Louisville This Month

Bob Gamble at workThe Women’s Center will have the pleasure and privilege of hosting the Rev. Robert Gamble, of This Child Here, on his visit to Louisville later this month.

We know those who have heard any of Bob’s stories about working with “children who live under the streets of Ukraine” will share our excitement about this imminent visit. We are looking forward to hearing his stories, seeing the images he has promised to bring, which we hope to have on display in Winn Center (we’re still working on the arrangements for this), and pondering what this example of ministry on the front lines means for us, to what it calls us.

We will be thinking, over the next month, about some of the relationships between working with street children in Ukraine and the basic work of rethinking the paradigm of relationships between women and men, with the ultimate object of securing full justice for all human beings. The relationships are, perhaps, as subterranean as the steam tunnels and networks in which the children with whom Rev. Gamble works every day take refuge. And as structural.

Bob Gamble will preach on the LPTS campus on Thursday, February 21, at 7:00 p.m. in Caldwell Chapel, and will present more about his work at a lunch-hour gathering on Friday, February 22, 12:30-1:30 p.m., in the Women’s Center, White Hall. He will meet with interested students in the Women’s Center on Friday afternoon.

About Ha_Qohelet

Ha_Qohelet is a transliteration of Hebrew definite article plus a feminine participle, all together meaning "the (feminine) one who assembles" or who calls together. Qohelet is the title of one of the books of the Hebrew Scripture, known in English as Ecclesiastes. The Women's Center at LPTS feels the epithet of Qohelet is a fitting one for what we do and are. The Women's Center is, indeed, a caller-together, a caller-to-wisdom, and an assembler -- of people, of ideas, of actions, and ultimately, we hope, of transformations in the world. In this context, Ha_Qohelet is the Director of the Women's Center, and Editor-in-Chief of Wimminwise.
