Walk with Jesus through stories and scripture, in movement and prayer, as we seek God's good road, the way of harmony. Along the journey, indigenous followers of Jesus from across North America and Hawaii (Turtle Island and Pasifika) will teach us about God's way of harmony and shalom by sharing stories and wisdom from their communities.

Meet Daniel Reinhardt in this conversation with ESN Director, Bob Trube on November 16, 2023 at 1 pm ET. In Rethinking the Police, Reinhardt lays out a history of policing in the United States, showing how it developed a culture of dehumanization, systemic racism, and brutality. But Reinhardt doesn’t stop there: he offers a new model of policing based not in dominance and control but in a culture of servant leadership, with concrete suggestions for procedural justice and community policing. Click here to register and attend.

Daniel Reinhardt (PhD, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary) served as a police officer near Cleveland, Ohio, for twenty-four years. After retiring from the police force, he was assistant professor at the Heart of Texas Foundation College of Ministry at the Memorial Unit, a prison in Rosharon, Texas. If you are unable to attend, please mark your calendar to check back for the recording on our YouTube channel, to which we hope you will subscribe.

At the first Christmas, God exchanged the glories of divinity for the vulnerability of human existence, uniting himself to us in order to unite us to God. In this short volume, priest and theologian Emily Hunter McGowin invites us into the church’s celebration of that great exchange, in all its theological and liturgical splendor.

Join Bob Trube and Wheaton College professor Emily Hunter McGowin (PhD, University of Dayton) on December 12, 2023 at 1 pm ET. Click here to register and attend. If you are unable to attend, please be on the lookout for the recording on our YouTube channel after the event.

Anxiety leads us to succumb to fear and fight peace. Anxious living is a distortion of good motives, blocking the clarity of stillness and rest. Alan Fadling has also felt mastered by worry, but he brings counsel on how to learn a better way and who to look to for it: Jesus, “the ultimate non-anxious presence.” He constructs a posture from which we can rest more deeply, live more fully, and lead better.

As you begin this new year, take time to join Alan Fadling, president and founder of Unhurried Living, Inc. and ESN Director Bob Trube for a conversation about his new book, A Non-Anxious Life: Experiencing the Peace of God's Presence, on January 16, 2024 at 3pm ET. Click here to register.
