With both sorrow and joy, we announce that Tom Grosh IV will be transitioning to a new role as an area director with CMDA (Christian Medical and Dental Association) in South Central Pennsylvania, and I will be carrying on the vision and mission of ESN. Sorrow, because Tom is an amazing colleague who has grown ESN into a vibrant ministry with a strong model, and I will miss him immensely. Joy, because Tom is moving on to another wonderful opportunity to serve Christ and still plans to do some volunteer writing with ESN, and joy also because I am deeply excited to grow the vision, mission, and model Tom has built at ESN.
One of my [Hannah] most vivid memories of Urbana 15: sitting at a table of emerging scholars passionately discussing what it means to be missional in a humanities field, as the loudspeaker above blared regular announcements such as, “Those in the green area, you should be finishing your salad now. Those in the red area, you should be clearing your tables now.”
As we enter a new week seeking to fulfill our call as Christ followers in the milieu of higher ed, may our thoughts, words and lives bless the Lord.
This summer, God has met me in a new way: in the contrast of writing poetry and scientific articles.
In the everyday work of relationships and tasks, we can still fulfill our purpose as we focus on our Father who walks with us.
