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.

The Keswick Lectures '16 - Sleeping with the Enemy
Glynn Harrison - Over the last few decades the sexual revolution has radically reshaped how people think about sex, marriage, the family and gender. Society’s thinking has been captured by a compelling moral vision and inspiring new ideas. Caught off-guard by the speed and scale of this cultural upheaval, Christians often appear defensive and unable to offer a better vision of their own. Many are beginning to question whether the gospel really is good news. In this lecture, Prof Glynn Harrison urges biblical Christians to wake up to what is happening around them. In the sphere of sex and relationships, we know what we are against, but do we know what we are for? And how do we live out an uncompromising commitment to the Bible and to treating others with the same grace with which the Lord Jesus has treated us?
