We’ve heard that voting for the “Court of the Elect” closes tonight at 8:00 p.m., and that all donations will be matched by an anonymous donor, so voters are encouraged to vote early and often.

The event, organized by the LPTS Community Affairs Committee, is the Spring semester’s big event designed to focus attention on the problem of HIV/AIDS, educate about the global scope of the AIDS pandemic, and take action towards addressing it. The Gender and Ministry Committee is a co-sponsor.

Deborah Fortel at Montreat Next Week

Women’s Center drop-in hours will be a little shorter on Tuesday next week — which is good news for the folks who will be at Montreat attending the “Transitioning from Solo to Multi-Staff Pastor” conference. That’s because Rev. Deborah Fortel, who has been keeping the Center open on Tuesday afternoons, will be co-leading that conference in the hills of North Carolina. We are wishing her, her co-leader Rev. Harris Schultz, and the group 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.
