Inquiring minds want to know... what 5 words were used for the acceptance speech?
seki -- thanks for reminding me that I wanted to call out to our listeners and readers for their five words. Last time, I totally choked... and uttered six words (oh, the shame!): "Support your local public radio station." What have you got for us?
I'm going to update this post and write a new entry calling out for your best shots. Muchos gracias.
Hey all at SOF, congratulations! I got a few folk from this side of the Atlantic to vote too. Devoted BBC listeners all of us, we nonetheless abandoned local radio (for me BBC 4) for better Radio (SoF)... You deserve it all... hope the celebrations are mighty! Pádraig (Belfast, N. Ireland)
Thanks for the kudos and the petitioning. Although we came up short in the vote for the People's Voice Webby, the judging panel (even David Bowie) recognized our work. As you may know, Krista is a huge fan of the BBC (lots of radio dramas methinks) and I tend to steer more toward their forward-thinking, experimental online initiatives. They have some great blogs about their work.
Five words or less: Ha! In your face Beliefnet!
Please accept our heartfelt gratitude.
You are everything to me.
five words to accept: spirit fills hearts with thanks
I have two suggestions -
spanning the spectrum of belief
unconditional intellectual philosophical spiritually soaring
''Faith speaks on all matters'
'Spirit matters in genuine matters'
'SoF explores spirit in life'

My 87-year-old mother-in-law and I share a converstion about your show frequently. I think your acceptance speech for your Webbie should be, "We do it for love."
Listening to the podcast, and very grateful for it.
Congratulations on the Webby award.
You said there is a tradition of 5 word acceptance speeches, and asked for suggestions. I have been reading "the Power Of Babel" by John McWhorter, a delightful book about linguistics, and according to the book, there are several languages that pack an entire phrase into one word. Hungarian and Finnish have this property, and there are a few others, but the Inuit languages are the champs. They could pack a whole paragraph into 5 words.
So that's my suggestion, translate it into Inuit!
Here's an example from Wikipedia
tusaatsiarunnanngittualuujungaI can't hear very well.
This long word is composed of a root word tusaa- - to hear - followed by five suffixes:
-tsiaq- well-junnaq- be able to-nngit- not-tualuu- very much-junga 1st pers. singular present indicative non-specificfrom:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I...
I'd love to know if this works..
Enjoy your show immensely
Or you could do the hula and pantomime it with your hands... "I will Hula it" <10 minute long dance t hanking listeners, voters, staff & crew> "thanks"hehehe
I believe in the us.
I'm a faithful (so to speak) listener. Congratulations!
A suggestion for your acceptance speech: "God (or whatever) is great."
Our prayers have been answered.
Two are better than one.
Many faiths, one welcome webby.
Oh my God! Thank You!
Full, rich, spiritual human interactions.
happiness comes from few desires
Knowledge speaks but Wisdom listens
together, searching, discovering, sharing, learning.
Five words or less: Faith's questions trump Reason's answers
Hearts hearing and heard here.
God does roll dice <pause> sometimes.</pause>
Trent the man!
"We love what we do - thanks." or "Thanks for honoring our passion." or "Our work is our passion.""Our passion created this. Thanks."
Join conversations among open minds.(I love your show)
Faith moves mountains -- look out!
Traveling hopefully is better than arriving.
Inspired by Robert Frost's poem below, my suggestion for your webby acceptance speach: Glows there a website that wonders.
“Breathes there a bard who isn’t movedWhen he finds his verse is understoodAnd not entirely disapprovedBy his Country and his Neighborhood!” Robert Frost, 1961
five words: Five words are not enough
Sharing mystery, wonder, joy: thanks.
You've got to have "Faith!"
Five words are not enough

5-word acceptance speech inspired by today's program w/ John Polkinghorne (elegantly simple)
L = GQ2 (squared)God's Quirky Quarks = Life
Acceptance speech: Our barbaric yawp was heard.
And this audience might know Whitman!
Congratulations on a fine show and a much-deserved recognition.
Being here demonstrates being here. That phrase might reflect the depth of SoF online.
Brilliance Equals Brevity Squared
Faith meets technology. Understanding ensues.
I'm not interested in winning anything (or, at least, not Everything), so I figured I'd put in this (although I had to do some brutal pruning to get it down to five words, so its probably not eligible ... [enough, Ambrose]. OK.
"shockwalker: rainless wind of lightening"
Possibilities for five word acceptance speech (for well-deserved award!!!!):

I heard on a recent podcast you're soliciting 5-word acceptance speeches for the upcoming Webby Awards. If it's not too late, here's one thought ...
SPEAKING OF FAITH DOT THANKS!
Great show and podcast - I've very much enjoyed listening to these over the past year!
Take care, and congratulations!
Best show ever. Looking forward to its continued success. Here's my 5 word suggestion:
Together we communicate, understand, evolve
Best show ever. Looking forward to its continued success and broadcast. Here's my 5 word suggestion:
Without Faith, we are speechless.
My 5 words definitely would have to be, simply: "Faith Received what it Believes!!"
My 5 words would definitely have to be: Faith Receives what it Believes!!
How about:First conversation, understanding, then mercyor
Conversation, next understanding, then mercy.

My suggestion for the Webby acceptance speach:
G-d moves in mysterious ways.
acceptance is "won" by allwe have all won todayIn gratitude, we all accept
we actually can thank god
We can't believe it! Thanks!
where E is elegance or eloquanceM is mediaC is creativity squared (a very large number)
Perhaps not very original but:
"Thank God and thank you"
Mysterious divine, online. Thank you.
Previously, I submitted: "We can't believe it! Thanks!"
But ... to really savor your time at the podium ... you might prefer: "We cannot believe this! Thanks!"
"We'd like to thank God."
