The Keswick Lectures '18 - Is Everything Mission?

Tim Chester - Campaigning against injustice. Conserving the environment. Championing Christian values. Caring of the needy. Chatting over a cup of coffee. Are they part of the church’s mission? What, if anything, makes them distinctly Christian activities? Does it matter? We’ll explore how God’s people should serve God’s mission in God’s world.
