“Sometimes they strew His way, and His sweet praises sing;
resounding all the day Hosannas to their King."
We’ve relegated Brexit to a 'thought for the day' alongside our commentary this week, from which you can click through to get the full text of the EU-Canada free trade agreement if you so wish. This is Holy Week, and that takes precedence.
One of the most memorable sermons - but it was in fact more like a homily - to which I have listened was in Lambeth Palace Chapel several years ago, in the run-up to Easter break. The then Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams (pictured alongside, courtesy of Wikipedia), gave a totally different perspective on Jesus riding into Jerusalem on a donkey, describing it as divine marketing: hugely raising the profile and significance of the world-changing days ahead.
The bridge between business and faith does not come easily for many people, notwithstanding the fact that most of Jesus’ teaching was in the context of everyday business life. The Archbishop’s revelation was quite an eye opener for me, so please READ ON .. as this week we look at what the Gospels teach us about divine marketing.
Please note that you're 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 and/or apps. 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 activated 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 are also entering everyone who signs up and activates 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 is accompanied by Share Music, its sister online station: great instrumental background music for reading, drafting or entertaining.

The main set of proposals are as follows:
