Women and Worship

woman-in-pulpitWomen’s lives and experiences have for long been obscured, marginalized, or actively excluded from corporate Christian worship. Thankfully, this has been changing! We hope it will continue to change, and that the pace of change will accelerate, thanks to aware and active participation from a new generation of worship leaders.

So, the Women’s Center is encouraged to learn that LPTS faculty members Johanna Bos and Claudio Carvalhaes will offer a course on Women and Worship this Spring, 2009 semester. We hope many will take advantage of this welcome opportunity.

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.
