We are grateful this month of September for Lift Up Your Hearts Devotional contributions from Barbara Gauthier in US.
Barbara Gauthier’s passion is to see others come to a fuller knowledge of Jesus Christ through a deeper understanding of the Scriptures and how they have been lived out and expressed in the Church over time. Barbara holds a PhD in French from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN, with additional training in Latin and Classical Greek. Over the past sixteen years, she has taught Latin, Classical and Koine Greek at the Greenhouse Co-School in Wheaton, IL. She also provides catechetical training alongside her husband, Stephen, who is the Canon Theologian for the ACNA, Diocese of the Upper Midwest. Barbara also spends her time mentoring women and conducts a women’s weekly Bible study. She has also taught seminars on Irenaeus and other early Church Fathers.
Thank you, Barbara, for your service and commitment to see Christ proclaimed faithfully.
UPCOMING IN OCTOBER
We are grateful that for the month of October, Lift Up Your Hearts devotional contributions will be from Dr. Bill Salier in Australia.
Bill is a consultant with the Gafcon Theological Education Network and his desire is to see excellent theological education around the world supporting the mission of the church in making disciples of Christ. Bill holds a PhD in New Testament studies from Cambridge University, has taught at Moore College, Sydney and was recently the Principal of Youthworks College, a college specialising in training workers for children’s and youth ministry. Bill is married to Sue and has three adult daughters. With age, his love for running has slowed to walking.
In these devotions we will be looking at John 1-4 as John takes his time to introduce Jesus to us. At times we will take a deep dive into specific verses, at other times longer passages. John’s desire is that we might trust Jesus to enjoy eternal life (John 20:30-31) and the hope is these devotions will help us along that path, whether we have just started out or been walking with Jesus for some time.
In writing these devotions, Bill would like to acknowledge the helpful insights of commentators on the Fourth Gospel including Andreas Köstenberger, Edward Klink, and Leslie Newbigin.
