Live - Keswick Convention 2019 - 17 July 9.30am - Lecture 1 - Longing: Ours, Theirs and Everyone’s
It is curious that in our deeply divided world, humanity seems easily able to reach consensus that 'things are not as they should be'. Our problem lies in our failure to agree on the 'what should be' bit. For followers of Jesus, the Great Commission is a vital part of 'what should be' - good news of great joy shared with the whole world! Yet enthusiasm for it, and the language used to articulate it, has shifted constantly through church history. 'Longing', as both word and paradigm, brilliantly captures an underappreciated but powerful aspect of God’s design for global mission.
Jason Mandryk was born, grew up, and studied in Canada before moving to the UK to join the Operation World team. For 20 years, he has served through multiple editions and publications of this ministry, as researcher, editor, author, and team leader. He is thrilled to minister in an exciting time when we are seeing the increasing convergence of information, prayer, and mission. He also enjoys being outdoors amidst God’s created grandeur; Keswick allows the best of both passions!

Discipleship Explored 4: Transformed by Christ
When people look at your life what do they see? In Philippians 2:12-30 Paul tells the Philippians to shine like stars in a 'warped and corrupted generation', by telling people the gospel. He says that the gospel must shine from every part of the believer's life; not just their words, but they must be an example of Christ by acting "without grumbling or arguing" and by being "blameless and pure." Paul says that as Christians obey Christ, their salvation works itself out - becomes visible - in their lives.
