100% online radio, across the world

 

Please note that as from Thursday 3rd August you'll be asked to sign in as a one-off event when listening to Share Radio, either as our live stream or podcasts, or for listening to Share Music via our website. Sign-in for listening via our Apps will follow over the next 2-3 weeks. It’s part of our transformation, to make our service more relevant and personal for listeners: and it’s made possible by being 100% online.

After you first enter your email address and have verified it, you shouldn't have to enter it again - as your computer or mobile device will remember that you've signed up. It’s not unlike BBC i-Player which is also asking listeners to say who they are.

However we’ll be entering everyone who signs up and verifies into our fortnightly prize draw for an internet radio, pre-set for Share Radio and Share Music: so there’ll be a chance to experience one of our Ocean Digital WR-220s which respond to a simple on-off button.

Share Radio online continues to be accompanied by Share Music, its sister online station: great instrumental background music for reading, drafting or entertaining.

 

 

A more philosophical/theological editorial this week, to accompany the season of summer holidays ..

The crowning glory of creation

While enjoying the meteor shower over the weekend I recalled the opening lines of one of the Church of England’s Communion prayers:

“From the beginning you have created all things
and all your works echo the silent music of your praise.
In the fullness of time you made us in your image,
the crown of all creation.
 
You gave us breath and speech, that with the angels and archangels
and all the powers of heaven
we may find a voice to sing your praise.”
 
A few weeks ago I was fortunate to attend Sir Stephen Hawking's 75th birthday symposium in Cambridge. The bridge between science and faith intrigues me as much as the bridge between business and faith, and last winter I recorded ‘Love in Creation’ as a contribution to unlocking the mysteries of God's technology.

The prayer presents the human race as the crown of creation, and perhaps we are: we haven't yet explored all those ‘Goldilocks’ planets with the potential of life. Current events certainly question how long we can remain such, in any case, assailed on one side by nuclear madness and on the other by ecological destruction.

Perhaps the words of this hymn may bring some comfort:

Be still, my soul:
your God will undertake
to guide the future
as he has the past.
Your hope, your confidence
let nothing shake,
all now mysterious
shall be clear at last.
Be still, my soul:
the tempests still obey
his voice, who ruled them
once on Galilee.”
 
But the prayer also points to the 'voice to sing your praise’, and perhaps it's there that we find the real crowning glory of creation: because sound is indeed only possible when all other elements of creation are in place - there is no sound in empty space.

That’s why it is such a privilege to be able to offer radio, both as speech - Share Radio - and music - Share Music. The final psalm, which opens Share Radio broadcasting each morning just before 7 am, ends with the words ‘Let everything that has breath praise the Lord’ - and appropriately so.
