This week on the Limitless Spirit Podcast, we’re starting a new series called “That’s Kingdom”, based on the World Mission Alliance’s upcoming conference on March 30,31 and April 1, 2022.
We will be focusing on various aspects of the Kingdom of God and how it is applicable to the believers in Christ. To start the series, our host Helen Todd has a conversation with Os Guinness about his family’s unique legacy in the mission field, the condition of the American church today and what it takes for us to become citizens in the Kingdom.
Os Guinness is an author, social critic, and great-great-great grandson of Arthur Guinness, the Dublin brewer. His family was prominent in the Irish revival and involved in missionary work in China including partnership with the famous missionary to China, Hudson Taylor. Os has written or edited more than 30 books that offer valuable insight into the cultural, political, and social contexts in which we all live. He completed his undergraduate degree at the University of London and his D.Phil. in the social sciences from Oriel College, Oxford.
