SAVE THE DATES: September 12 & 13


SEPTEMBER 12 AND 13, 2010

While in Rochester, I visited with our next Katie Geneva Cannon Lecturer, Dr. Gay Byron, of Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School. We had a great conversation and envisage a marvelous time together in September. Dr. Byron will present the lecture on Sunday and the next day provide a workshop on her research on the early Christian Church in Ethiopia. This will be our fifth Katie Geneva Cannon Lecture and all the events will take place within the context of the conference “A WOMAN’S VOICE – WOMEN SPEAKING WITH AUTHORITY IN RELIGIOUS COMMUNITY” to be held on September 12 and 13 on our campus. Our two other speakers are: Dr. Nancy Fuchs Kreimer of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College in Philadelphia and Suendam Birinci of Hartford Seminary. This promises to be a conference filled with energizing and spirit-filled occasions, so make your reservations early!

You can do so by going to the Women’s Center Facebook page, by contacting Johanna Bos ( or, the Women’s Center (, or Kate Davidson ( We will soon make it possible for you to register online via the LPTS website.

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.

  1. Dear Ms. Thiessen,

    Hi, my name is Natalie Richards, and I work for SR Education Group, an educational resource provider. In light of Yeardley Loves’ tragic death, I felt compelled to create an article that might help students and victims of domestic violence.

    This article offers statistics, myths, resources, and treatment options for those suffering from domestic abuse, sexual assault or stalking.

    It is really unfortunate that there is a stigma on women to accept and cope with abuse. My intention is to try and help women (or people in general) to find support, and stop this cycle of mistreatment.

    Perhaps this information will make a useful addition to your featured links page.

    Thank you for your time.

    Best, Natalie
