SURPRISE!

Yes, it's a baby shower!

Yes, it's a baby shower!

This baby shower had it all: a full complement of friends, colorful gifts, delicious food, AND the element of surprise. All that was missing was — the Soon-to-be-Mother! The planners of our esteemed colleague Bridget Couch’s surprise baby shower hadn’t reckoned on the guest of honor not showing up for her own shower. The LPTS staff, administrators and faculty assembled in the Women’s Center placed a well-timed conference call instead, complete with a musical rendition of “Happy Baby Shower to You!” which, considering the ensemble’s lack of rehearsal, was extraordinary.

We continue to wish Bridget and baby well!

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.
