Worship Tomorrow Bears Witness

Worship on Friday will bear witness to the wrong of Violence Against Women

We are especially looking forward to chapel tomorrow, after receiving this word from the planners:

Dear community,

the Chapel Ministers and the Worship Resource Center invite you all to worship with us this Friday, October 15, 2010 at 11:30 a.m., when we will hear the Word proclaimed by Dr. Elizabeth Walker.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and during this Eucharistic worship service we will give honor and memory to those who have suffered violence. You, dear community, are invited to bring shirts to represent yourself, your own loved ones and friends, or the worldwide community that have suffered violence in any form. We will incorporate into our liturgy The Clothesline Project, which bears witness to violence against women, and during this time, you will have the opportunity to hang your shirts side-by-side with others.

We hope you will join us in worship, and if you cannot be with us, may you be in prayer for all those who have suffered violence, wherever you may be.

We hope many members of our community will attend, take the message to heart, and continue to pray and work for the realization of God’s realm of justice and peace. The vision of that realm includes “no violence against women.”

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.
