"We live in a world that is so focused on the self and individualism and each person making him- or herself their highest authority, that when you apply that sort of worldview and that sort of way of thinking to reading Scripture, then it very quickly becomes...all about me. And that's entirely the wrong way to read Scripture...Especially as our culture has been influenced by the Protestant Reformation and Protestant Christianity, I think that we have lost our way in terms of how we are supposed to read Scripture," said James L.

The Ball Drops For Cindy

She makes room for him over the holidays. (erotic Coupling)By Baztrachian.  (edited) Listen to the Podcast at Steamy Stories.In her freshman year at Northwestern Sindy had started working at a local coffee shop where she met Ryan. Ryan was five years older than Sindy, on the verge of graduating and merely looking at him made Sindy's pulse race faster.Ryan for his part was initially unaware of Sindy's interest in him. But over the course of the year he'd come to the coffee shop to study and he gradually started to notice the cute girl with the blonde hair always staring at him. He found himself appreciating the graceful curve of her modest breasts and her almost ever-present smile.It was a few days before the end of September when Ryan asked Sindy if she'd like to go out for a date sometime. Naturally she said yes.Sindy's parents were not wealthy but they were well off and when Sindy went to college they made sure she had her own apartment. It was just a one bedroom affair with another room that was her kitchen, dining room, and living room all in one. Where Ryan shared his cramped dormer with two other young men that meant that his dates with Sindy frequently took place at her apartment.Despite the circumstance their relationship was rather chaste. Sindy was always careful to make sure that things never got out of hand and that often left Ryan feeling frustrated. Still, he loved the girl and felt she was worth waiting for. But at the same time he longed to feel her bare skin against his own. Sindy of course had similar feelings for Ryan but she was constrained by her conservative spiritual upbringing and her parent's expectation that she wait until marriage before getting physical with a young man.Fate stepped in and late in the week before Christmas break one of Ryan's roommates had left an electric hot plate unattended in close proximity to their pathetic little Christmas tree. Fortunately the ensuing fire took place during the day when almost all of the dorm residents were off at class. The remaining few who were in the dorm at the time safely made it out when the fire alarms went off.Unfortunately the dorm was an old wooden structure and by the time the fire department arrived the building was a total loss. The fire department had no pretensions about saving the building and instead focused their efforts on preventing damage to other nearby dorms.That afternoon Ryan got word that he was now out of a home and that what few clothes he owned had been consumed in the conflagration. The only spare clothes he still had were in his gym locker and these were suddenly much more important than they had been the day before.Ryan texted Sindy and let her know about the fire. It turned out that Sindy had heard about the fire and she was of course pleased that Ryan was safe. But he had nowhere to live for the moment. The two of them agreed to meet for coffee to discuss the matter.With the Christmas break only a day away Sindy asked Ryan if he could handle sleeping on her futon couch while she was away at home. The futon couch was one of those that went from being a couch into being a bed in moments. Naturally Ryan agreed to her terms that he keep his distance while living with Sindy and with only the things in his backpack he went home with Sindy.That evening the two young people went out to gather a few sundries for Ryan to replace the things he lost. Sindy found it to be an intimate experience to shop for toiletries for her boyfriend and she also found herself desiring a more domestic lifestyle. Fantasies of marriage danced around her mind on the walk back to her apartment and she allowed herself a satisfied smile as she realized that it was now ‘their' apartment.The two of them stayed up later than usual due to the circumstance. They shared a late take out dinner and then got the couch set up as a bed for Ryan. Sindy excused herself to get ready for bed and Ryan listened as she did her evening grooming in the bathroom. He didn't see her when she went into her bedroom and closed the door. His turn in the bathroom followed and then for lack of anything else to wear he just shucked his clothes and put on a clean pair of sweat pants for the night.Sitting on his improvised bed Ryan caught his breath when Sindy returned to the room. She was wearing a simple silk nightshirt that buttoned down the front, her legs were temptingly bare, and the silk fabric readily betrayed the fact that Sindy's breasts were tantalizingly unconstrained by a bra.For her part Sindy felt flushed when she saw Ryan. It was the first time she'd seen him bare above the waist and he was everything she'd hoped for. He was well toned but not overly detailed like the narcissists she'd see in the weight rooms for hours on end. His chest had a proper tuft of hair unlike the fey boys who'd shave themselves hairless. And her eyes could not help but drift down to where she saw his sweat pants notably tented.Being a relatively cloistered girl Sindy was naïve to Ryan's erection and she merely thought it impressive. Still, the sight of her boyfriend half naked flustered the girl and she said a quick good night before retreating to the safety of her bedroom.It ended up being more than an hour before either of the two of them slipped into a slumber.The following morning saw Ryan waking up early. He started a pot of coffee and then took a shower. As he was washing himself he felt his morning hard-on and decided to do something about it. His fist wrapped around the hard cock and started working it. Trying to choke back his moans Ryan quickly spewed four strong streams of cum into the steaming water.When he came out to the main room Sindy was already there, sipping her cup of coffee. The two young people were quite awkward as they tried to make conversation and it was the welcome fact of an early train for Sindy that put an end to the moment. A chaste kiss was exchanged and then Sindy ran off to catch her train.Ryan watched her from the window as she ran down the street and when she turned the corner he saw her look back and wave. He smiled and waved at her as she walked out of sight.Arriving at home Sindy somehow managed to get through the holiday without letting her parents know about Ryan or how he was currently living in her apartment. Images of Ryan's bare chest replayed in her mind all through Christmas. At the church Christmas Eve service she found herself thinking about the birth of Jesus and how maybe someday she'd have a baby of her own. Her mind drifted back to Ryan and she snorted back a small giggle as she realized she didn't want to have an immaculate conception.Christmas came the next day and Sindy managed to slip away from her family long enough to call Ryan and wish him a Merry Christmas. The sound of his soothing voice was music to her ears and she found herself eager to get back to Evanston.Her parents were actually impressed when Sindy told them she wanted to get back to school early. Her logical reason was that she wanted to be safe back at her apartment on New Year's Eve instead of trying to travel with so many other people on New Year's Day. That particular year New Year's Day fell on a Sunday and that made the following day a work day. Even the news media predicted chaos for travel that day what with a massive snowstorm on the way for New Year's Day.It was just before lunch time when Sindy got back to the apartment. Ryan was out somewhere but she knew he'd be back because he was expecting her home. Sure enough she had just doffed her jacket and hat when Ryan came in the door. He set down a bag of groceries and the two of them shared a passionate kiss. Sindy didn't care that Ryan's hand cupped one of her boobs as they kissed. No, she realized she liked it.They broke their kiss and laughed that they were so much more passionate with each other. Sindy for her part was glad that Ryan hadn't gone any further because she didn't trust herself after having such lustful thoughts recently, for him.The two of them chatted and caught up with each other as they put away the groceries. Ryan had splurged and bought the makings for Sindy's favorite cocktail which was a Mai Tai. Sindy didn't care for champagne because it gave her headaches, so Ryan had thoughtfully planned on the Mai Tai to toast in the new year.It was just after nine when the expected snow started to fall. It wasn't long after that when Ryan poured a fifth of white rum into a pitcher and then added pineapple juice, sweetened lime juice, grenadine, and a generous amount of dark rum to round off the drink.Now Ryan could drink pretty hard, like most senior college men; but to be fair to him he wasn't planning on drinking the whole pitcher of Mai Tai that one night. The thing was that he only knew the recipe one way and that was how he made it. He expected the pitcher of the cocktail would be sipped on for a few days.At eleven the two young people sat in front of their TV and watched as the new year was welcomed in New York City. They toasted each other and Sindy finished her second Mai Tai of the evening. When she set down her glass she excused herself to get ready for bed and suggested that Ryan do the same thing.In her bedroom she pulled off her winter travel outfit of blue jeans and a flannel shirt and put on her favorite silk nightshirt. As was her habit, she dispensed with her bra for the night and felt a bit of relief as her size C globes were freed from their modest restraints.It was then that Sindy noticed her panties were moist. She sighed with irritation because this was typical around the second week after her period, each month. She didn't like that her panties would get wet with the same clear stringy fluid every ovulation. Taking off her panties she tossed them in her dirty laundry basket and grabbed a tissue to clean herself.When she was finished, she tossed the tissue in her waste basket and then opened a drawer to find a fresh pair of panties. The first pair she found were her favorite linen panties she'd bought for herself at Nordstrom. She held them in her hand and shook her head at the thought of ruining them with all the ‘snot' coming out of her pussy.“Maybe he won't notice”, she said to herself. Looking in the mirror to make sure her nightshirt covered her down to just above her knees she decided it would be okay to go without panties for the next hour. She absently nodded her head as if to approve this decision.Returning to the living room she found Ryan bare chested as usual and wearing only his sweat pants. He'd converted the futon to a bed while she was busy and was under the blankets on his makeshift bed when she returned. He invited her to join him and share his warmth. She didn't hesitate and she also didn't hesitate to help herself to the Mai Tai glass that had been refilled while she'd been changing.Ryan somehow managed to behave himself as a nearly naked Sindy sat next to him. He'd seen her profile as she walked into the room and he instantly noticed the lack of panty lines under her silk nightshirt. He felt his balls roll with anticipation when the girl got under the blankets with him. He also did his best to convince his cock to settle down as he wrapped his arm around her; both of them watching the TV which was on her side of the futon.The hour went by and soon enough there was a countdown and then the TV showed the fireworks at the Navy Pier in Chicago as the new year arrived.Ryan pulled Sindy over close and kissed her to celebrate their first new year's celebration together. The two of them were warm and tense when Sindy broke their kiss to suggest they toast the new year.Sindy's glass was empty again so Ryan got up and refilled it from the pitcher on the kitchenette counter.Returning to her, he saw her sitting up, her bare feet on the carpet and then saw the silly smile on her face. She was sitting on the edge of the futon and he thought she might be thinking about going to her bedroom. He realized she wasn't drunk but she wasn't far from it. He put the two glasses down on a side table and then knelt down on the carpet in front of Sindy.Leaning into her as she sat on the bed he gently kissed her. Her arms came up around him as she kissed him back. A few minutes went by as the two of them kissed and explored each other's bodies. The music from the celebration on TV created a very romantic tone for the moment.Sindy didn't notice when Ryan deftly undid the buttons on her nightshirt. Her whole universe at that moment was consumed with the sensations of kissing, being kissed, and feeling the strong bare shoulders of her man. She also didn't notice as Ryan gently parted her knees with his hips.“Oh.” Ryan heard her say as she felt him suckle on one of her nipples. She kissed the top of his head and her hands went to his waist as she felt him grinding himself into her crotch. Remembering that she wasn't protected by the flimsy fabric of her panties her hands went further down his waist to find the reassuring presence of Ryan's sweat pants right where they should be.Ryan pulled away from her for a moment and shut off the TV. They were now in darkness save for the light that came in from the street outside. It was also unusually quiet what with the sounds of the city muffled by an ever intensifying snow storm.In the darkness she saw him stand up and when he took her hand she obliged and stood up as well. She complied when he eased her nightshirt off of her shoulders even though she wasn't truly cognizant of the situation. The presence of his sweat pants made her feel that it was okay if one of them was naked.He guided her back to the bedroom, helped her into bed, and pulled the warm blankets over her. Then he went to the other side of the bed and climbed in. Her brief exposure to the cold air of the apartment made her welcome the warmth when Ryan moved partly on to her and kissed her again.She felt his hand explore her body and she didn't complain. His big warm hand moved around feeling her neck, her breasts, her waist, her hips, and then he slowly moved it to her pussy. She tensed when he first touched her down there but then relaxed as he gently explored and then found her button. Sindy was overwhelmed with sensation and alcohol as Ryan ministered to her needs.Ryan was no virgin nor was he a philanderer. He'd had just one girlfriend in high school and after three years of experience he knew his way around the female body. Sindy responded to his touch just like his old girlfriend used to. Her legs relaxed as he rubbed and teased her button and after some time he chanced to let a finger explore her cleft.“Omigawd” he heard as his finger easily slipped into Sindy's body. She was so wet for him. She was ready.He moved himself over on top of her and gently parted her legs. The soft underside of his cock brushed against the fine blonde hair of her pubes as the two of them adjusted to their new position.Sindy didn't give it any thought when she had to spread her legs for Ryan's legs above her. It was just the natural thing to do and she loved how his body was now pressing her down into the soft mattress. the bed that was cold a few minutes ago, was now warm and soft.  She felt him moving and adjusting as they kissed. Then she felt something warm, firm, and yet soft brush against her lower belly. The alcohol made this sensation into something quizzical but not alarming. She was horny, but buzzed. She's never been in bed with a man until tonight. the entire experience was surreal and wonderful.Ryan moved himself down on the virgin and started sucking on her nipples and lightly biting them. She moaned in approval and then reflexively pulled her legs back and rested the soles of her feet against the backs of his thighs. Sindy herself was surprised when she did this. It seemed so lewd! Yet something had made her do this and it seemed like it was the right thing to do. She also felt more comfortable this way. Her primal nature directed her responses.Sindy loved feeling Ryan suckling and biting her nipples and when he started kissing his way up her chest she had a moment of longing, wishing he'd suckle her some more.His lips moved to her ear and lightly tugged at her earlobe. Then he moved his lips back to hers and she felt his tongue move into her mouth. It was her first French kiss and somehow it didn't feel new or strange to her. It felt good to have part of him inside her body. Letting him into her body was, well; was just what her body knew to do.In the midst of kissing him Sindy felt Ryan's pelvis moving on her and she became aware of something very warm pressing against her pussy. She felt her pussy lips part and then the something moved between them rubbing back and forth. It felt nice. Very nice. She knew she wanted more of this feeling.“What are you doing to me?” she whispered into the night air.“I'm making love to you.” was what she heard in reply.Her mind struggled to process the import of what they were doing and what she had just heard.‘We couldn't be having sex, right? We're just making out! And besides', she thought to herself, 'he still has his sweat pants on.'Her hands moved from his shoulders to his waist. And then she moved them to his bare ass that was moving in synch with the sensation she felt between her legs. Sindy was torn as she realized that he was naked. She realized that the thing so wonderfully sliding back and forth in her furrow was Ryan's thick and stiff bare cock. Part of her wanted him to stop. But it felt so good!'It's safe so long as he doesn't actually go inside me' she told herself.Ryan moved and put one arm around her with his hand holding her left shoulder. His other hand snaked around her waist and held her tight. She wasn't going anywhere now and they both knew this.Ryan withdrew his cock from running between Sindy's pussy lips and for a moment Sindy felt relief that he was done and at the same time she felt a pang of loss that it was over. She couldn't help herself but to feel giddy when she felt him press into her. It wasn't the same feeling as the rubbing but she wanted it all the same. Her cunt was hot, swollen, oozing, and hungry.She felt him press into her with a kind of urgency. The blunt tip of his cock was now searching for her opening in earnest. She felt it press and then slip away from her. Then she felt his body move back and try again.“Oh, I'm not so sure…” she said as Ryan's blunt tip finally found the right spot and she felt that tip press into the mouth of her pussy. Her hands went to Ryan's waist as if to push him away.Ryan felt Sindy tense as his cock pushed past the threshold of her pussy. He felt her try to lift his body off of hers. He paused for a moment as she said something.In that brief moment Sindy understood that Ryan's mind had checked out. The same primal instincts gave him a course of directives, which his body was destined to accomplish without needing his brain to direct. He was holding her so tight and if she didn't get him to stop it would be too late!She struggled just a bit and realized her mistake as her movement got his cock into the exact right position to penetrate her body.Ryan had felt his cock push past her pussy lips but then it wasn't going any further. Then Sindy's pelvis instinctively moved around and suddenly his cock moved deeper into her pussy.Sindy caught her breath as she felt Ryan's cock slip into her pussy. She was about to ask him to stop when his strong arms held her tight and he started thrusting into her. She wasn't yet aware that her own hips were already beginning to move in sync with his primal mission. In a few moments she felt him deep inside her body and she felt his warm balls coming down, resting on her ass.“Ohmigod.” she said.Ryan felt a sense of relief with his cock finally buried into the object of his desires. He hadn't had his cock in a pussy for almost six years and the feeling was exquisite. Part of him wanted to fuck her hard and get his rocks off. A more sensible part of him reminded him that he loved this girl.“Are you okay?” he said to Sindy.“Yeah.” she whispered, “We're having sex aren't we?”He gave her a gentle thrust and replied playfully, “Yeah, I think we are.”Ryan kissed her and slowly started thrusting himself into the girl. She took a little time to relax but eventually she did and so did Ryan. He raised up slowly, dragging his engorged cock along the rippled inner walls of her deep pussie canal; only to feel his shaft switch it's polarity and drive back, deep into her deep canal again, dropping his balls again, on her awaiting ass. He paused every now and again as he fought back the urge to fuck her hard and cum. His body wanted to fuck her body, but his heart & soul wanted to become one with her heart & soul.For her part Sindy was in awe of the amazing things happening to her. She had never imagined sex would feel so wonderful and intimate. It seemed surreal that for all of the years she had imagined what this moment would be like the moment was now upon her. She loved Ryan but at this moment he was simply the man who was finally fucking her. She surrendered her intellect, over to her body. ‘Don't think,' she instinctive told her mind. ‘Don't discuss. Don't blow this moment!' ‘Your body knows what to do. So does his. Now celebrate this marvel!'It was perhaps a therapeutic benefit that she'd been more than tipsy. She played with his hair and ran her fingernails on his scalp as he fucked her. She loved that he moaned in response. She loved the heavy male scent she smelled on him. She was a little bashful about the wet squishing sound coming from between her legs but she didn't think Ryan cared.As the lovers gently fucked Sindy's mind remembered sitting in church the week before. She remembered thinking about Jesus and his mother Mary. And the immaculate conception.Sindy kissed Ryan on the tip of his nose as he fucked her. She remembered being a smartass thinking she didn't want an immaculate conception.The three Mai Tai's and the cock sliding back and forth in her pussy made it easier for her to dismiss her own thoughts. And then it registered that what she and Ryan were doing could create a baby.She heard his breath coming faster. He was moaning every now and then and she realized that she was too.Maybe she should ask him to stop?“Uhm, fuck.” he grunted.She felt him start to move a little faster.His quickly rose from her while keeping his cock inside her body. His hands went to her knees and then, scooping her legs with his arms, he raised them up to her shoulders and pressed down on her again. Her feet were now on either side of his head.She hadn't thought it possible but now he was all the way inside her pussy. He kept his cock inside of her and thrusted over and over. She felt like she was getting beaten from the inside as his cock tried to punch its way up into her belly!He slammed into her repeatedly and yelled, “Ah, ah, ah!”Sindy grimaced as his cock pressed painfully into her cervix. Then she felt his cock swell up and start fluttering inside of her belly. The realization that she was being inseminated at that moment was mind blowing for her. Something inside of her responded and Sindy found herself feeling like something was building. She felt liquid blasts deep within her, and her vaginal reflexes triggered a euphoria which flooded every cell of her body, like a strong intoxicant invading all her 5 senses.Ryan fucked her hard and managed to get a few more squirts of cum into her. It was enough that Sindy felt her body tremble and tingle. Her toes curled and she held Ryan tight. He knew what was happening to her and started giving her a steady fucking.“Hunuhh!” she uttered and then collapsed spent from her first serious orgasm.Ryan let himself fall to the side while still laying over her hips; keeping his softening cock deeply embedded inside of Sindy.Caressing her exposed breasts he spoke, “That was amazing.”She brushed back some hair from her face. “Yeah, it was. We're gonna need to talk about this tomorrow.” There was a more serious tone to her voice.“True.” he said. They both knew not to kill this sacred moment with intellectual interactions.They didn't say anything else. Sindy got up and went off the bathroom to clean up and when she came back Ryan held the blankets up to welcome her back. She spooned up to him with her back to him and they held each other as they fell asleep.Around four in the morning Ryan woke up and quickly realized that very naked and very available Sindy was cuddled up with him. His cock was quickly hard again.He kissed Sindy's bare shoulder and got no response. She was sleeping off three cocktails and a vigorous fucking after all. He let his hands explore the girl and managed to provoke a murmur of approval from her when he fingered one of her nipples.He pulled her ass towards him a few inches and then swabbed his cock at her pussy. She was sticky from their earlier exertions but when he got her pussy lips to open a bit her moisture called to him. With his hand on her hip he gently pushed into her and in a few strokes was inside of her again.She stirred and looked over her shoulder at him. “Ryan?”“Yeah, it's me.”“Oh, okay” she said pushing back on his cock.This time wasn't about Sindy. Ryan needed to nut and he found himself fucking her. Not making love to her but just plain fucking her. When he got there he held her tight and pushed deep which elicited a whimper of complaint from Sindy. His cum spewed into her again and when he was done he held himself inside of her.When they awoke it was well past seven yet it was still kind of dark out. Sindy kissed Ryan and then went off to take a much needed shower. When she was done she put on a robe and she and Ryan exchanged pleasantries as he took his place in the shower. Neither of them had yet fully comprehended the fullness of what happened to them within the past few hours.Looking out the window Sindy saw the snow coming down and when she looked at the street it was covered in white. There were the telltale lumps of parked cars but it was obvious the snowplows had other priorities.She got the coffee going and started making breakfast. She was damned hungry and that called for eggs.Ryan was finished just in time for breakfast and the two of them sat on the futon watching local news cover 'The Storm of the Century'. He had on the sweat pants and a t-shirt.When breakfast was finished Sindy refilled their coffee cups and sat back on the futon with Ryan.“So.” she said.“Yeah.” he said with resignation, preparing himself for what was to come.“I wanted it, too.” she said as she sipped her coffee.“Really? You're okay with it all?”She demurely nodded. “Yeah, I wanted you and the alcohol was just an excuse. It's not the fairy tale way to lose my virginity but it really isn't far from it. We have a warm bed and a snowstorm outside on New Year's. It's kind of romantic really.”“Sindy, what are we going to tell your parents? It's not like you can keep me a secret after this.”She looked him in the eye. “What if we have a baby? That's more important to me right now.”Sindy expected a lot of things but she didn't expect Ryan to smile.“I'd love to have a baby with you, Sindy. I'd be crazy not to.” The two had become one. Not because of a license, not because of a priest, but because the forces of nature, and nature's God had consumated their hearts and bodies. Just as the biblical patriarch, Isaac; had simply taken Rebecca into the tent and began a marriage with a mutual commitment and intercourse, God still keeps things simple. Mankind finds ways to complicate things.The tears started to flow. Ryan pulled her close to comfort her and she told him she was happy and not sad. They sat there together for a couple hours discussing ideas for a house maybe up in Wisconsin somewhere. They talked about a modest wedding ceremony. They talked about babies.They had an early dinner that night and Sindy had just finished doing the dishes when Ryan came up to her and put his arms around her. One his hands came across bare flesh under her robe.“What are you wearing under there?” he asked.“Nothing.”“You've been naked under there all day?”She smiled. “Yup. Care to do something about it?”A few moments later Sindy had her hands on the kitchen counter while Ryan was busy fucking her from behind. Looking down at her feet she wondered if she was going to be barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen.“I hope so.” she said out loud.Society didn't know they got married during the snow storm, but the two became one in the purest, most natural sense.By Baztrachian for Literotica

Throughout the year, Land-Grant Holy Land will be bringing you uncut audio primarily from Ohio State press conferences, but also from individual interview sessions. Ohio State (9-3, 1-0) played down to the level of their competition Thursday night in the first half, briefly trailing Alabama A&M (4-9) for just over 60 seconds. But a Buckeye avalanche ensued in the second half, and they won the game by 31 points in dominant fashion. After the game. Bruce Thornton and Tanner Holden spoke with a few media members — the few who aren't in Atlanta — about the win. Thornton admitted he really has “No idea” what the Big Ten will be like with 19 games coming up over the next two-plus months. Holden also spoke on that, as well as his team's struggles getting back in transition at times. Holtmann followed and also was critical of his team's transition defense, saying it “Just isn't where it needs to be now.” But he was proud of the way both Isaac Likekele and Gene Brown played after being out for extended periods of time.

I had no idea that I'd break into tears during this podcast, but I did. The topic is love, after all.  And my heart is broken BIG TIME.   I am reviewing these notes on the morning of surgery to fix a deviated septum from middle school when my nose was severely broken.  My mom had looked at me with my Marsha-Brady-episode-where-her-nose-blew-up-to-3x-times-the-size-and-black-and-blue-eyes (that rhymes) and said, “You're fine.” So today, I don't breathe as well as would be optimal. I believe this is part of my loss of health story.  I'm finally getting it fixed.   It has been a HORRIBLE road to get to this morning. I drive around the streets of Evanston, recognizing the places where I was there for my husband when he needed surgery. When I dropped my life to “serve” him.  Now that my “service” doesn't “serve” him, where is he?    I've been a less-than-optimal-version-of-myself. I'm so sorry, to everyone, who has had to see any part of this journey. Per my ideas on apologies, I plan to make sure that I do better.  I'm on my way now to my dad's house to give him a hug. I was not my best self when I saw him last.   My mom also has been offering help, and I hope to take her up on some help during my convalescence.    In today's episode, I call on Shakira to help me, again. She has been one of my important spiritual guides in my life.  I LOVE SHAKIRA. (Me encanta!).Sometimes it can put your own problems in perspective when you hear about those of others. Shakira has been through an insane year.  My broken heart goes out to hers.   Let's start with this song by Shakira, Monotonía  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5y6xLpRwx4 OMG that is me!  I put my heart on a sleeve, and it got stepped on big time. Thrown on the street, broken. I have felt empty and lying on the floor like Shakira is shown.     Then we go to Don't You Worry https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=me19SUmWu2s   I know it's possible to cry all day and night until you fall asleep sitting up, but eventually, it DOES stop.  Your dogs or cats might be soaking wet with your tears and really pent up with energy because you haven't left the house (and are really worrying the neighbors with whatever can come through the walls), but it does eventually stop.  At least for that day.    Then you might find yourself crying the next day again, and it may also come in waves when you least expect it. But I have to say to myself, “everything's gonna be okay.” Gracias Shakira.   Then we move to Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pRpeEdMmmQ0   “When you fall get up, eh eh.”    And I will start to meet my OWN NEEDs.   After all, what we need or want from others, we must be able to give to ourselves. Connection with others plays a role in everyone's lives in different ways for different reasons. It is difficult to sustain connections with others when we struggle to connect and meet our needs within ourselves. So…   I will see myself I will hear myself I will understand myself I will fairly judge myself.   Maybe I need to take up dance lessons so that I can move like Shakira. RRRRR. And get back to my work at Nurture to help communities in need.   Mantras from the show:#1: Get to know love; we don't understand it in our culture#2: Move past “conditional” vs. “unconditional” love and consider compassionate love.#3: Understand the many types of love the Greeks appreciated: Eros, Philia, Ludus, Agape, Pragma, Philatia. I realize that I hardly get into the types on my podcast, so just read about it here.Your homework, if you choose to accept:  go help someone in need!   If you are a woman, tune in to what might be happening to other women (or the feminine side of a man) today.    There seems to be strong energy around conflict and the change of an old model that involved subjugating women. (Yep, I just wrote that– ask me about the times I've seen gross men pat waitresses' asses and be total assholes.  I've been on the wrong side of that equation, ME TOO).   See the paradigm for change from episode 124.    Two questions if you're brave enough to consider change:- Can women and men start to do LESS of being the Perpetrator and Victim?   And move into Creator and Challenger?- Can we start to truly CO-CREATE the way I believe that God/Goddess/All that is intended?   Let's finish with, What is Love (the SNL version with A Night at the Roxbury https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2h4PhgobI8   Thank you for watching.  I'm going to go pick up dog poop now. Hasta luego! I am learning late in life how to express “bad” emotions like sadness and anger.  I sent this to my Dad before heading to surgery.  He is upset with me and my recent displays of anger (even though, I believe I have a lot to be sad and mad about– being lied to and deceived by your husband for nearly decades is a biggie).   PS– If you have not been following the podcast, the LIES I was told and believed were that I was a priority in my husband's life.  He opened his mouth a gazillion times and said, “You are my #1.  You are a priority.”  He wrote those words many times. His actions didn't match those words, which created a lot of dissonance in my nervous system.  Perhaps that is why I didn't sleep and had insomnia for nearly two decades.    And you know what?  Maybe I lied too.  Maybe when I said to him, “You're doing a good job” I was certainly lying about his role as a husband. I didn't do a good job listening to my inner voice telling me something was off.    Ultimately, our lies only did a good job of hurting me. We created an enormous amount of dissonance and pent-up issues in my nervous system, which then created more problems. I'm trying to dig myself out in so many ways.   While my husband skis on the slopes and enjoys the beachfront condo I set up for him in Puerto Rico. PENDEJO.     I'm off to drive myself to surgery.  I hired some help afterward.  Be well.   This is what I sent to Jeff after I expressed anger to him, which he could not handle.   In a text:   I'm sorryPlease forgive me I love youThank you   Then he sent the cops on me.  Hopefully, with you, Dad, you will be understanding and confident in knowing that I DO love you and intend only the best for both you and me in sending this prayer to you.   I am strong and will survive.   Again, I love you.

Episode 38: The Artistic and Spiritual Journey of Pastor Jolin Wilks McElroy.

Art Ladders: The Creative Climb

What a blessing to be with our friend, Jolin Wilks McElroy for a holiday conversation on art and spirituality. Jolin and Armin first met in the 1990s while working together at the art materials and frame store of Good's of Evanston. During her time working at Good's led Jolin to rethink her calling as a artist and pursue another path to attend a theological seminary for a Masters in Divinity. Here is her bio in more detail: Jolin Wilks McElroy has been Pastor at First Christian Church in Charlotte since July of 2000. During her tenure there, she has watched the congregation grow into presence in the Charlotte and Dilworth communities–branching out into service through the Dilworth Soup Kitchen, supporting many missions and outreach groups, and providing a meeting place for classes and events. She has also rejoiced as this church has been transformed by other cultural groups joining the congregation. With a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Colorado State University in 1990, Jolin Wilks intended to paint for a living. The call to ministry challenged her to consider a new direction for her life. In 1995 she enrolled at Lexington Theological Seminary and received her Masters in Divinity in 1999. Rev. McElroy still finds some time to draw and paint while also serving the church in more traditional ways. In addition to gallery shows and auctions, First Christian Church has a display of her pastel portraits of church members lining the walls of the education building. Another exhibit, Holy Communion, a series of watercolor portraits of Disciples of Christ members and leaders, began traveling the denomination since the Fall of 2004. Because of her dual vocations of art and ministry, she has been a desired speaker on the topic of creativity and spirituality for retreats and workshops. One significant endeavor was sketching portraits of 33 children of two Head Start programs for the benefit of their families, sponsored by The Craddock Center in Cherry Log, Georgia. Prior to accepting the call to her current position, Rev. McElroy served as: Associate Minister to First Christian Church, Falls Church, VA (1998-2000); Chaplain Intern at St. Elizabeths Hospital in Washington, DC (summer of 1998); and Pastor of First Christian Church, Carlisle KY (1995-1998). In addition to her work at First Christian, Rev.

Is Sugar by Another Name Just as Sweet? Ali Wing and Oobli Are Fermenting Their Way to a Sweet Protein Future We all know that eating too much sugar isn't good for us, but millions of years of evolution led us to love sweet foods. After all, they provide us with a quick boost of energy needed in an ancestral environment where we were largely active throughout the day. Of course, today most people in the developed world are far from being active all day, yet we still crave sugar and eat it in an abundance far greater than what was available to our distant ancestors from whom we descend. There've been plenty of attempts to create sweetness without the negative effects that go along with eating the refined sugars we seem to love so much. From older products like aspartame to newer ones like stevia or allulose, a pot of gold awaits those who can help humanity satiate our sweet tooth without contributing to the health crises we now face. To that end, we're talking today with Oobli CEO Ali Wing about her company's efforts to commercialize the world's first sweet proteins. Yes, you read that right: sweet proteins. In 2022 Oobli closed a $25 million Series B round, bringing the company's total fundraising to date to $40 million.  So, how do they create sweet proteins? As you'll hear Ali describe in this episode, some plants naturally produce proteins that happen to be sweet as an evolutionary trick. It'd be difficult to mass produce those plants, but via microbial fermentation, Oobli has figured out how to produce the bioidentical proteins themselves.  I had the pleasure of enjoying some of Oobli's pre-market products and I certainly couldn't tell the difference myself. I was especially excited to try the company's chocolate bar which tastes as sweet as a full-sugar bar, but with 70 percent less sugar.  It's an exciting way to sweeten the food industry without turning our health sour. I think you'll enjoy hearing Ali tell you the story of how she and her team intend to make your life, and your health, a little bit sweeter. Discussed in this episode Paul recommends Sugar: A Bittersweet History by Elizabeth Abbott Ali recommends Loonshots by Safi Bahcall Ali also recommends John Doerr's books Ali mentions this study about the metabolic impacts of alt-sugars More about Ali Wing A growth CEO, Ali is best known for tackling big consumer problems, brand strategy & building high performing, agile teams. Specializing at the intersection of consumer brands, technology & healthy living, Ali's value creation track record crosses CPG, retail, technology, healthcare & biotech.  Ali is currently the CEO & Director of Oobli, Inc., a food technology company leveraging precision fermentation to disrupt sugar. Prior to Oobli, Ali served as the Chief Consumer Officer of Bright Health Group, EVP of Digital/Chief Brand Officer at Ascena Retail Group, Founder/CEO/ Chairwoman of giggle, an EIR for a variety of venture-backed consumer software & technology companies & a Corporate Securities Attorney in the Silicon Valley.  Ali launched her career at NIKE in brand leadership & strategy. In addition to her operating role at Oobli, Ali currently serves as an independent director on the boards of Casey's General Stores (NASDAQ: CASY) & Worldwide Orphans (WWO), & acts as an advisor to several growth technology companies.  Previously Ali served as an independent director for Bazaarvoice (NASDAQ: BV) until it was sold to Marlin Equity in early 2018. Ali lives in the California with her husband, has an only son in college & holds a dual JD / MBA from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL.  Ali has completed Harvard Business School's 2020/2021 Corporate Governance Certificate Program & was recognized among Women's Inc Top 100 Corporate Board of Directors in 2019.

Hanukkah has become a part of the Jewish-American experience that was essentially brought about by two Rabbis who worked tirelessly during the mid 1800s to improve Jewish life and beliefs in America. Dianne and Jennie pay a virtual visit to Walnut Hills Jewish Cemetery in Evanston, Ohio where the graves of Rabbi Issac Mayer Wise and Rabbi Max Lilienthal are located. These two Ordinary Extraordinary men were instrumental in the Jewish Reform movement in the countries of their births, but even more so once they emigrated to American soil.  And it was through their efforts that Hanukkah became a more mainstream celebration within Jewish communities across the country.

Cleyvis Natera took 15 years to write Neruda on the Park, and you can see why when you read the novel. There many pieces of the book that speak to Natera's life: navigating America with and on behalf of her parents, seeing gentrification slowly creep into the neighborhoods she has loved, the flawed and complex relationships between generations of women within one community. Kate had a chance to sit down with Cleyvis at the recent Brooklyn Book Festival and they talked about how Cleyvis' growth and maturity contributed to the growth and maturity of her novel.
