Engaging Society was produced for InterVarsity’s Following Christ 2002 Conference. I find it an apt piece (9 min, 17 sec) for our reflection and action not only on Martin Luther King Jr Day, but as the Emerging Scholars Network (ESN) pushes ahead in 2014.
In the coming days, weeks, and months we will give focused attention to the meaning/purpose of higher ed and how this plays out across disciplines, the “academic ladder”, our neighborhood . . . the creation as a whole. As you have material to add to this conversation (e.g., posts to write for the ESN blog, links to share with the ESN Facebook Wall, campuses/conferences to connect with, a legacy to create/share/leave as a blessing to others), please contact me. Thank-you.
