Many students feel crippled by anxiety and don’t know where to begin to process it. A global pandemic and an uncertain future only amplify what we are experiencing together—but apart. On Thursday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Director of Gospel Aid with CRU, Eric Heistand, tells us about a new program, Mental Health & Jesus, a 4-week conversation series for small groups of students, from the spiritually curious to the committed student leader. Designed by students with input from mental health professionals and Cru campus staff, Mental Health & Jesus is all about the transformative power of connection in the context of community.
We read food labels, count calories, and keep lists of favorite recipes, but have you ever stopped to ponder: what does God’s Word say about food? Thursday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, speaker and Bible teacher Erin Davis explores the sacred relationship between food and faith in Fasting & Feasting: 40 Devotions to Satisfy the Hungry Heart. From unpacking Biblical examples of food being used to teach spiritual principles, to addressing the misconceptions people often have about fasting and feasting, Davis offers hope to anyone who has experienced a complicated relationship with food.
Eric and Mason Heistand live just outside of Boone, NC and have three children, Clement, Haines, and Anna Brooks. They serve college students around the world. Students are their focus. Making disciples is their mission. Eric serves as the director for Cru's Gospel in Action team.

Special Projects under their leadership are: Cru with Filter of Hope, Clean Water Missions, Cru with IJM, Ghana, www.justiceandjesus.com, www.mentalhealthandjesus.com, and www.goodfridayconversation.com.
