Spirit In Action
Each week, Spirit In Action brings you stories of people living lives of fruitful service, of peace, community, compassion, creative action and progressive efforts. We'll trace the spiritual roots that support and nourish them in their service. Above all, we'll seek out Light, Love and Helping Hands, being shared between our many neighbors on this planet, hoping to inspire and encourage you to sink deep roots and produce sacred fruit in your own life.

Spirit In Action is an hour of interviews with those providing leadership in peace, justice and "good works", interspersed with relevant music.

The theme music is "The Turning of the World" performed by Sara Thomsen (written by Ruth Pellham) and "I Have No Hands But Yours" by Carol Johnson

Spirit In Action -Steve Chase - Activating the Activists
I am investigating how to include the syndicated show northernspiritradio on KPOV here in Bend, OR. The Community radio station has plenty of syndicated shows but needs LOCAL programing. I heard that Steve Chase was doing this in New Hampshire. Do you have any guidelines of what would work for northern spirit radio? Right now my thought is to edit from each show of the syndicated program and then include a short interview with local people and how they express their spirituality in social action. Would this work for Northern Spirit Radio or do you require a full hearing of the program without editing it? Jay Jordet Bend, OR 97701
