When do your secrets hurt your wellbeing?
While there is nothing inherently wrong with having secrets - it depends what the secret is and what revealing involves - the more burdensome it is for you to keep, the more likely it will affect your well-being.
Beating the bias in AI
As organisations implement machine learning algorithms, it is crucial that we understand the implications of the biased decisions AI can make. ETIQ have built tools to detect and stop the bias, unfairness and bad decisions.
Should doctors prescribe kindness?
A doctors' practice has developed a parenting programme of events, lessons, and tools promoting kindness. Practicing kindness and purpose benefits children and helps kids care for others and flourish themselves.

Online - Open Book - A Public Faith: How Followers of Christ Should Serve the Common Good
In many ways, living as a ‘royal priesthood’ (1 Peter 2:9) is simpler (and safer) under a liberal democracy. But as recent political economic turmoil has demonstrated, things are still pretty upside-down in 21st-Century Britain.
Our Christian identity and message is distinctive, and must be declared in word and deed. But how can we do this as one particular voice among many in our pluralistic society, when religious comments on the status quo are often seen as intolerant and unwelcome? And how do we guard against faith’s malfunctions, whether being overly defensive or controlling?
To help you explore these questions, join LICC for a three-week discussion of Miroslav Volf’s modern classic, A Public Faith: How Followers of Christ Should Serve the Common Good.

In-Person - Science, Faith and Ethics Conference - Sheffield
@Diamond Lecture Theatre, 32 Leavygreave Road, Sheffield
The theme of this year's Christian's in Science Connect Conference is 'Science, Faith, and Ethics'! Science is a good gift from God - but how do we steward it and use it in a way that glorifies God? This conference will aim to answer and get us thinking about these questions.
Online - Wisdom Lab: The Common Good
Right and left. Traditional and progressive. Old and young. Rural and urban. In these turbulent times, our public square is fragmenting, as a number of different worldviews and ideologies jostle for top spot. And as secularism takes hold, Christianity doesn’t have the cultural authority it once did – indeed, faith perspectives are often ignored, maligned, or misunderstood.
Yet it’s in the public square, our workplaces, our neighbourhoods, our families that Christ has called us to live as salt and light, bringing out the God-flavours and God-colours of the world.
So, how might we live distinctly, whilst partnering with those around us – however different their views may be – to pursue the common good? How might we live as a creative minority, to ‘seek the peace and prosperity’ of the places God has put us (Jeremiah 29:7)? How can we use our influence to join in with God’s redemptive work?
