Thought for the Week: Young People Search for Meaning
The Theos Think Tank has demonstrated that the ‘angry hostility towards religion engineered by the new atheist movement is over' in their report ‘Science and Religion: moving away from the shallow end’. This shows how young people are increasingly open to exploring the meaning of life, and prepared to explore the bridge between science and faith. This commentary brings out some of the key points emerging from their work and provides insights from economics and the book of Ecclesiastes in order to argue that the best way to tackle these dilemmas is through the application of logic. The background music is the track 'Resolution' by Wayne Jones. There are a wide range of links from the webpage version of the commentary, which can be accessed at https://www.shareradio.co.uk/thinkingaloud/newsletters/comment-wc-2022-05-03/

Thought for the Week: Misrepresenting Christianity
How can Patriarch Kirill, head of the Russian Orthodox Church justify his support for Putin's murderous assault as in keeping with Christian teaching? Former Church of England Archbishop Rowan Williams, whose long affinity with the Orthodox Church brings a deep awareness of its history, is right to call for Russian Orthodox expulsion from the World Council of Churches. In this week before Easter we need to re-visit basic Christian teaching on respect for others, however different they may be to ourselves. As our quote from author D.B. Harrop says: 'Have a big enough heart to love unconditionally, and a broad enough mind to embrace the differences that make each of us unique'.

The Hypnotist: Deepak Chopra Quote
"Awakening is not changing who you are but discarding who you are not." Adam Cox presents a short episode setting out a new formula for change. People normally associate change with additional effort and inertia often results - but what if it were a simple matter of discarding the things that we are not, but which we've accumulated over the years by habit? 15 minutes spent listening to this episode could be a real life changer for the future.

Share Radio Interview with Vicky Sayers

The Share Interview: Making fashion sustainable
Whether you’re always up to date with the latest fashion trends, or you prefer to stick to old favourites, the need for clothing will always be in style. But what does it take to launch a successful fashion brand? And in a time in which many of us are increasingly concerned with the state of the environment, is the clothing industry doing enough to steer away from “fast fashion” towards a more sustainable future? In this episode of the Share interview, Vicky Sayers is joined by Clare Hall-Taylor: Marketing Director Edmund Hillary Brands, a durable clothing range made using natural materials.

This is Money: Can consumer power help the planet?
It's fair to say environmental issues have moved to the forefront of the agenda in recent times. This week, editor Simon Lambert, assistant editor Lee Boyce and host Georgie Frost take a look at potential changes you can make to help the pound in your pocket turn a little greener. Simon explains his rallying cry for us to be his acronym 'Layby' rather than being labelled 'Nimbys'. Layby – or look after your back yard – is a movement to look after the country we live in. When it comes to investing, there is a growing movement where savers who want to combat climate change invest a small amount of money in the very companies eco-activists traditionally rally against, such as fossil fuel giants Shell and BP – so why? What can you do to be a more eco-friendly tourist? And finally… it's hard enough trying to predict how rapidly a normal car will depreciate, but estimating the loss of value of an electric vehicle is a whole other ball game. We reveal all.

This is Money: Who’s afraid of a no-deal Brexit?
This is Money with Georgie Frost and Editor Simon Lambert. On this week's episode the team discusses about Brexit. Depends who you talk to but the OBR and Chancellor Philip Hammond have this week been painting another, rather bleak picture. But how likely is a no deal? What would it really mean for your money? Also, advice on investments is making a return to the High Street — backed by one of Britain's biggest banks. Will others follow suit? Plus, the pair get all romantic....talking faking your divorce to avoid tax and if you ditch the man, can you keep the engagement ring?

IEA: The Christian Case for Capitalism
On our podcast this week, Digital Manager Darren Grimes discussed the relationship between capitalism and Christianity with our Senior Academic Fellow Philip Booth and Father Marcus Walker, Rector of St Bartholomew’s Church in London. Following recent, seemingly anti-capitalist, interventions by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, they assessed the extent to which the Church of England can still be considered the “Conservative Party at Prayer”. They also examined the treatment of markets, free exchange and private property in scripture. Finally, they hypothesised that the decline of religion in our society has coincided with the growth of the State, and a growing sense that the government, not private institutions or families, should take responsibility for societal ills.
