"Are you feeling weary? Perhaps worn out from adversity or conflict? Jesus' justice-worn heart, dusy feet and tear-laden eyes remind us he carries our humanity into God's presence as the only true Son of God and our great mediator. Come and study the book of Hebrews where you will find an anchor for your weary soul."

Medical students across the US anticipate Match Day with both excitement and trepidation. On this spring day, fourth-year medical students find out where they will be starting their residency or fellowship training programs. We offer this prayer as a way to reflect and remember the ways God has been faithful in the past and the promise that he will continue to be faithful during this pivotal transition.

The ESN blog has partnered with Emerging Scholars as writers of content for and by graduate students and faculty.

We are so grateful to the ESN Blog writers for these contributions.

"Bridging the Divide: A Scientist's Search for Faith and Truth" is a delightful interview by NPR with Dr. Francis Collins, Director of the National Institutes of Health.

We’re all moving toward the unknown this fall. We don’t know what to expect, or even how to imagine what things will be like. It’s a critical moment when we can choose to follow Jesus on the journey, to walk by faith instead of sight. This collection of readings from the Emerging Scholars Network blog is designed to help you do that together. Built in are study questions, prayer ideas, and optional spiritual activities for groups meeting online or in socially distanced ways.
