And one of them,Â a lawyer, asked him a questionÂ to test him.Â â€œTeacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?â€Â And he said to him,Â â€œYou shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.Â This is the great and first commandment.Â AndÂ a second is like it:Â You shall love your neighbor as yourself.Â On these two commandments dependÂ all the Law and the Prophets.â€ Matthew 22:35-40, ESV [Read more…] about Loving Our Neighbors Through Research (Scholar’s Compass)
I had an amazing week at the Lausanne Creation Care and the Gospel conference.

Scholar’s Compass is going to Lausanne! ESN isn’t headed to Switzerland, but it is headed to an upcoming Lausanne Movement Creation Care and the Gospel Conference in the US. The end of July conferenceÂ will bring together evangelical leaders and scholars from the US and Canada. It’s a perfect time for ESN staff toÂ grow in understanding of God’s creation, and a perfect time to share Scholar’s Compass with gathered evangelical leaders.
Handing a Scholar’s Compass booklet to a pastor or professorÂ may make all the difference in whether someone explores this resource after the conference, or forgets about it in a sea of notes.Â For July only, we have a matching grant to double funds donated towards sharing Scholar’s Compass booklets with conferences such as Lausanne.Â Click on the link above to help support this effort.
