Can 500 words expand community? That’s exactly what’s happened this year. ESN members have been praying with us for growth in community through Scholar’s Compass, an ESN devotional series by and for scholars. These short devotionals have shared great stories and ideas with our readers, and they’ve also expanded our community dramatically.
Here are a few ways that’s been happening. Scholar’s Compass has invited Christian scholars across the the globe into conversation with each other, with writers in Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, and Oceania. It’s served as the springboard for deep conversations about faith and learning among peers, mentoring connections, and more. And it’s gathered a group of thoughtful Christian scholars across a wide range of disciplines and career points. There’s been so much growth in community and interest from writers that we’ve decided to continue Scholar’s Compass posts past August into the 2015/2016 academic year. We’re ready to engage that community further through

- events at conferences such as
