About me

60E99CA4-0CC5-457D-87DF-3ED78DD6F81CMy name is John Squires. I live in Canberra, the national capital of Australia. I have been an active participant in the Uniting Church in Australia (UCA) since it was formed in 1977, and was ordained as a Minister of the Word in this church in 1980. I have served in rural, regional, and urban congregations and as a Presbytery resource minister. For two decades I taught Biblical Studies at United Theological College in Sydney, and more recently I was Director of Education and Formation and Principal of the Perth Theological Hall. In 2019 I am undertaking an Intentional Interim Ministry in the Canberra Region Presbytery. I’ve studied the scriptures in depth; I hold a number of degrees, including a PhD in early Christian literature. I am committed to providing the best opportunities for education within the church, so that people can hold to an informed faith, which is how the UCA Basis of Union describes it. This blog is one contribution to that ongoing task.
