Guarding and proclaiming the unchanging truth in a changing world

Devotion

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.
