Worship from Shirley Baptist Church, Shirley, Solihull, UK for Sunday November 13, 2022. In this Remembrance Sunday service, we continue our series on ‘Together in Worship' as we discover from Psalm 42 how it is still possible to praise God in the midst of a broken world. Remembrance Sunday is a time for silent reflection about wars both past and present and a longing for peace and wholeness. As we worship together, may our collective praise be heard in the midst of a broken world, and may each soul be encouraged by the God who is the giver of hope and the rock when all else fails.

Worship from Shirley Baptist Church, Shirley, Solihull, UK for Sunday October 2, 2022. Over the past four weeks Mat has shared on the theme of ‘Togetherness in Christ'. This Sunday he adds an extra talk with the title ‘Together in God's Mission'. However, don't think that this means mission should be considered an added extra. No! Rather, mission is rooted in the very heart and character of God. This can be seen when we consider the letter to Philippians as a whole, as it is a letter that calls us to be together in mission, demonstrating and declaring the hope of Jesus to a hurting and often hopeless world. And in support of this we hear from our global mission partner Charly Tom as he updates us on the exciting things the Lord is doing through ‘Mercy Mission' in India.

Tesla battery supplier LG Energy Solutions announces $1.4B battery factory in Arizona - Tesla battery supplier LG Energy Solutions announced it would build a $1.4 billion battery production facility in Arizona as demand for electric vehicles throughout the United States skyrockets. - LG Energy Solutions said it would build the $1.4 billion plant to meet demand for “prominent startups” and other North American companies - The factory is expected to be operational by 2024, the company believes. - The Arizona plant will be LGES's first-ever U.S. factory to make cylindrical electric vehicle cells, which are typically used by automakers like Tesla and Lucid, which has an automotive production facility in Arizona.

The recent PAS 2060 certification makes the plant the world's first zero-carbon factory in the new energy industry. - The certification marks a significant milestone for CATL towards its carbon neutrality goals. As the world's first zero-carbon battery plant, CATL's Sichuan plant sets an example of how battery production can be carbon neutral. - To become PAS 2060 certified, CATL-SC said it developed a "trailblazing smart plant management system", which enables the interconnection of data by  automatically capturing the plant system data and equipment operation data. The system-wide facility management platform helps to ensure safe, reliable, high-efficiency and low-carbon operation of the facility. Even the forklifts used at the plant are electric. Employees are also encouraged to use electric vehicles and shared mobility to get to work, further reducing their carbon footprint. - CATL-SC's parent CATL is emerging as a leader in EV battery production on a global scale. In December, CATL began phase 1 production at its newest EV battery factory in China. Once completed, the plant will be the world's largest EV battery factory with an annual production of 120 GWh. The plant will be more than three times the size of Tesla's gigafactory in Nevada. - CATL is investing 17 billion yuan (US$2.6 billion) in the plant and said it will create about 10,000 jobs once fully operational.

The company is also rolling out a slimmer, redesigned EV charger aimed at improving the customer experience. - The company's new stations are organized around comfort, security, and amenities, with a nod toward the length of time it takes to recharge an EV. Electrify America says the goal is to create “a more inviting transition to an electric vehicle lifestyle from traditional gas station.” - The most notable change for Electrify America's current design is the inclusion of solar panel awnings, which have the dual effect of sheltering customers from the sun and inclement weather while also supplying power for the station's operations. The company says it is currently in the process of adding solar awnings to 400-500 individual chargers at 100 charging stations across the country. It already has solar canopies at its flagship charging stations in Baker and Santa Clara, California. - The company has also begun rolling out a redesigned EV charger with a slimmer profile and newly simplified controls. The ultra-fast chargers with up to 150 and 350 kilowatts of charging power stand at nearly 8 feet tall, with recessed screens to help reduce sunlight glare.

Web search interest in electric vehicles reached a record high in the US in March, according to Google Trends. - EVs are still prohibitively expensive for many US households. And rather than shelling out even more money up front, many consumers tend to hold on to their current vehicles for as long as they'll last. - It's also not just EVs; people are looking for more fuel-efficient vehicles in general, including hybrids and compact cars, of which sales spiked early this year, according to Michelle Krebs, executive analyst for Cox Automotive. - The problem, Krebs said, is that the EV supply is currently limited, which is what many people searching for electric vehicles on Google are probably finding out.

Considering that Polestar qualifies for the $7,500 federal EV tax credit and Tesla doesn't, the actual price difference could be even greater for some customers. - In states with generous incentives—like New Jersey—the single-motor Polestar 2 could be had for "well under $35,000," - Both the single-motor and dual-motor versions of the Polestar 2 are available with two option packages. The Plus Pack ($4,000) adds the heat pump that enables the maximum 270-mile range, along with a panoramic glass roof, 13-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, and WeaveTech vegan upholstery. The Pilot Pack ($3,200) adds driver-assist features like adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and Polestar parent Volvo's Pilot Assist system.

The firm plans to put six electric models on the road by 2025 but will still use its Solihull plant as its main hub for electric vehicle manufacturing. - As for Land Rover, it is set to launch the all-electric Range Rover in 2024.

Ben Francis is the founder and CEO of GymShark, a fitness company he started with some school friends back in 2012, drop-shipping supplements to their pals in the bodybuilding community. The first thing Ben sold was a £52 pound tub of USN Hyperbolic Mass protein powder — an order that earned ben a whopping £2 profit, but which left him, in his own words, dancing around his bedroom. A few years later, a single event caused one of Gymshark's tracksuits to go viral, and the young company went from selling £300 of clothes a day, to making £30,000 of revenue in just half a single hour. But it wasn't until last year, perhaps, that the company became a true household name, and the 29-year-old Ben became a poster boy for modern British entrepreneurship — after General Atlantic invested more than $260 million in the business, valuing it at over a billion pounds.  In a highly enjoyable episode of the podcast, we sat down with Ben up at company's  Solihull campus to discuss why humility is the best trait of all; the time Ben suffered a total ‘ego death,' and how we should always feel like we're winging it, all of the time. Enjoy.
