Revd Canon Dr John Ashley Null, has previously contributed to Lift Up Your Hearts and returns again to walk us through Ascensiontide. The ten days of Ascensiontide begins Thursday, May 13th (the 40th day of Easter), and ends on Pentecost Sunday, May 23. Ashley is is an internationally respected scholar on the grace and gratitude theology of the English Reformation--we are blessed for his willingness to contribute devotions during this season. The focus during this period will be on the importance of an eternal perspective now. He will address how we need the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit to be fruitful here and now, linking us to Christ as we prepare for our eventual heavenly home. Join us until the Day of Pentecost (Whitsunday) in this short series.
For the month of May, Lorna Ashworth will contribute to Lift Up Your Hearts devotionals from May 3 until May 12 and then will pick back up again after the Day of Pentecost from May 24 until May 31. Lorna Ashworth is a Canadian who has lived in England for nearly 26 years after marrying an Englishman she met in Jamaica while on missions. She is a mother of 3 teenage children and is a former member of the General Synod of the Church of England and the Archbishop's Council. Lorna studied theology alongside her husband at Oak Hill Theological College where she completed a degree and MA in theology and loves to see scripture clearly communicated and understood. The focus of her series this month is on forgiveness. How do you forgive? Why do we forgive? How can I forgive someone if they won’t even accept that they have done anything wrong? These are the types of questions that Lorna addresses through scripture this month. We are thankful for her contributions and hope that they will be edifying to you in your daily walk with the Lord through His word.
