Is commercial radio ‘secular’?

Quote from Lyndon Bowring (Executive Chair) of the Christian Chairty ‘Care’ whilst in conversation with me on Premier Radio today:

‘Nothing is secular in the sight of God – except sin!’

After talking to Lyndon I reflected on the number of times Christians use the word ‘secular’.  When talking to people about my media chaplaincy people often use the term ‘secular commercial radio’ in comparrison to the Christian Comercial broadcasters.  In the light of Lyndon’s comments, perhaps it would be better to say ‘mainstream’ commercial radio.  I believe God is interested in the radio industry and, by his grace and Holy Spirit, is present within!  Those who seek will find Him.  Moreover, we are never alone.
