Breakfast to Be

An inviting breakfast

Invitation! Anticipation! Preparation!

We are just one week away from the annual
Women’s Center Alumnae Breakfast
Tuesday, May 3
8:00 a.m.
in the Women’s Center

The Women’s Center looks forward to the re-enactment of this recent tradition with joy and delight. It holds the promise of renewing fond acquaintances, reviewing the challenges, changes and accomplishments of the past year (or perhaps, years), and revisiting momentous memories. It is a brief, precious chance to share coffee and conversation with some of the women – and, always, a few men – who have traveled back to the Seminary’s and Women’s Center’s spaces for the Festival of Theology and Reunion.

A core element of the mission of the Women’s Center is “the celebration of the gifts and achievements of women in the church and the world.” This annual breakfast is an instance of that celebration. We celebrate the work and worth of these remarkable women who are connected by experience and memory to this place by spending time in their presence, sharing their laughter and liveliness. Whether we find ourselves congratulating or comiserating, empathizing or enthusing, we always find ourselves actively recognizing the profound gift of relationship and communion these women bring to the church and the world they serve.

So we look forward to seeing the faces of many friends, both familiar and new, on Tuesday, May 3, and eagerly anticipate the celebration that is the Women’s Center’s annual Alumnae Breakfast.

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.
