Scripture
Philippians 2:3-11
3Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.4Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.5Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:6Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,7but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.8And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death-- even death on a cross!9Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name,10that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,11and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

This is Chad Pearson?
“This is Chad Pearson?” is episode #220 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written by Marshal Younger, and originally aired on February 20, 1993.

Summary

Every pre-teen girl in Odyssey is trying to win a day with a soap opera star in a contest. Connie wins and we find out that the girls' hero is an ordinary guy.

Plot

At the Electric Palace one afternoon, Bart Rathbone notices Kim Peterson and Erica Clark glued to the row of televisions. They are watching a show starring the character Chad Pearson. Bart notices how devoted the girls are to this TV personality, and he recognizes a potential money-making opportunity. He sponsors a contest. The winner gets to spend a day with the actor Nick Grant, who plays Chad Pearson!

The young girls of the town are ecstatic at the prospect, especially Erica. But she is terribly disappointed when the winner of the contest turns out to be...Connie Kendall! As it turns out, Connie couldn’t be less interested in the whole situation. Nick ends up to be a nice guy who isn’t at all like his television character, but who is lonely. And Connie ends up making a new friend.

This plot section is too short and should be expanded. »
