Episode Summary

#33 Materialism: Money. Sex. Power. Control. Are you in the world or of it? What's the difference anyway, and does it even matter today? EdgeTV's Materialism takes a hard look at young peoples' struggles against worldly temptations and their pursuit to live with meaning, faith and purpose and asks "what are you thirsty for?" Liquid Consumerism: Thirsty? Here are the very real stories of young people who struggle not so much with your typical American shopping-mall consumerism, but with consuming those other worldly and easily available goods-alcohol and drugs (12:08). EdgeTV Drama: 3-D. What we see is not always what we get. To rise above the world's pull, it helps to be reminded that we're more than just consumers in a material body...we're 3-D (2:45). Riding Against the Grain: Chairmen of the Board. Riding with the U.S. National Snowboard Team can be wild and wacky trip. So how do some of its members keep life from getting out of control? (12:58). Reality Check: Living in a Material World. Need an update on what's going on outside the walls of your church or home? Or what young people today may believe about wealth, things and faith? Then maybe it's time for a check on reality... (4:06). Third World View: Food for Thought. Been thinking you don't have enough stuff? Before slapping down that cash for your new buy, check out what life is like in Nairobi, where people would just like a decent meal to eat. Then think again about what you really need (6:03).moreless
