As we wrap up our fall preview series today, we’d like to highlight one more way to engage with community. We’re inviting members and friends of ESN to share more about their own communities on the blog this year. We’d love to encourage emerging scholars by sharing what other believers are doing to build community in their own localities or online networks.
Fall 2015 Preview
Want to join our team of interviewers? Or are you willing to be interviewed about topics such as choosing graduate programs and applying, navigating different career stages, learning to teach, publishing your first book, etc.?
Living out your vocation doesn’t just happen when you have the time for extended theological reflection or peaceful spiritual exercises on retreat. It also happens when you’re grading papers, starting a postdoc, going to conferences, and writing your dissertation. Some of ESN’s most widely read posts last year focused on wrestling through one’s vocation while navigating a particular career stage or working through a common academic experience.
Emerging scholars often tell us that they don’t know where to start when they begin trying to integrate faith and their subjects. Our goal with Scholar’s Call is to generate a series of documents for each discipline that can serve as springboards or starting points for exploring what it means to integrate Christian theology/spirituality and thoughtful engagement with an academic discipline.
Today we’re celebrating one year of Scholar’s Compass. We’re also continuing this week’s preview of ESN activities and blog content this year with a glimpse into how Scholar’s Compass will continue this academic year. God has blessed Scholar’s Compass richly this year, providing great content and a solid foundation for growth in community.
