Thank You, Tunefully!

A precursor of today's CD changer

A precursor of today's CD changer


The Women’s Center wishes to thank — profusely, though not so loudly or at such hours that we will make ourselves annoying to our neighbors, who include the President of the Seminary — the generous anonymous donor responsible for the gift of a CD changer/tape deck/FM radio.

This will make it possible for us to: accommodate requests to play CDs in conjunction with workshops being held in the Center; review musical selections that might be used in worship; play musical files that accompany presentations. We’ve had calls for all of these tasks, and in the past we’ve had to make special arrangements, or ask workshop leaders and presenters to bring their own CD players.

Almost needless to say, this will also make it possible for whatever gatherings take place in the Women’s Center to include mechanically (electronically?) reproduced music.

As our reading of Reinhold Niebuhr has taught us, every new possibility for good entails new possibilities for evil as well. Mindful of the dangers that accompany every form of power, we pledge ourselves to responsible and respectful use of our newly-augmented and much appreciated technological potential.

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.
