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.

Of all the many activities of an academic life, writing is one of the most important.  It is time consuming and can be deeply frustrating.  As followers of Jesus, we have the opportunity to view our writing as part of our discipleship - an expression deeply rooted in our relationship with our Savior.  But what does this mean?  Join us Jan 12-14, 2024 for a writing retreat exploring this question and others like it.

January 16, 2024 | Virtual Meeting

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.
