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!

Engaging with Islam Course 2: The Life of Muhammad
To understand Muslims and Islamic culture, you must understand the life of Muhammed. In Islam, Muhammed is the last messenger from God, the founder of the Islamic empire and his life is the very context for understanding the Qur'an. To learn about Muhammed you need to look not at the Qu'ran but at the Sira and the Hadith, although most Muslims will only learn this from their leaders and will never read these books themselves. This session explores the traditional and accepts accounts about Muhammed.
