“I got hooked on the stuff as a kid. The rush wasimmediate and fantastic. But gradually I discovered it took more and more to meet my needs. I was hooked.” The addiction? Money. Two hundred proof money.” – Choice radio spot
Eleven inspiring 60-second radio spots (and two 30-second ones) with ideas to help people live better, more simply.
The 60-second spots are written and voice by David Augsburger, long-running voice of Choice radio spots produced for about 20 years in the 70s – 90s. In true “more with less” fashion, we carefully scrutinized radio spots from the 1981 series, Choice: Living More with Less and found a number that were amazingly current for 2011 and beyond. The two 30-second spots won a Gracie award from American Women in Radio & TV in 2005.
These radio spots relate to a book published first in 1980 which sold over 115,000 copies, Living More With Less, by Doris Janzen Longacre and a 30th anniversary updated edition by Valerie Weaver-Zercher.
And this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also–not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a good conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at God’s right hand–with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him. — 1 Peter 3:21-22 (NIV)
I came to bring fire to the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! I have a baptism with which to be baptized, and what stress I am under until it is completed! Do you think that I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division! — Luke 12:49-51 (NRSV)
But Jesus answered, “You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I am about to drink?” They said to him, “We are able.” He said to them, “You will indeed drink my cup, but to sit at my right hand and at my left, this is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared by my Father.” — Matthew 20:22-23 (NRSV) • Context: Matthew 20:20-28
