2 doors seem to be opening for Christian Radio for myself. The first is my second appearance on John Manning's God Talk show 4pm Sunday (3 weeks time) on Near FM in Dublin. John has had this slot for over 10 years and has developed a following of thousands. He spends much of the week taking calls and ministering to people who otherwise have little or no Christian contact. Being on a "secular" station excites me!
The other door opening is to do with the transformation of the Pilgrim Talk podcast (see link at side), which I do with David O'Rourke, into a regular Christian Radio show in Ireland and perhaps for export. There is a welcome increase in Irish produced Christian talk radio programmes and with UCB Ireland going on FM in September even more opportunities are opening up. 
The cynical people might see Radio work as a big fat ego trip. I don't. I see it as a very real work of faith because you do not see the listeners yet you broadcast the word of God believing someone somewhere will be or might be changed. Research in Ireland show how popular radio remains despite all the new technology. 
Ireland needs a saviour and His name is not EU nor ECB nor IMF nor USA but JESUS.
