    in Parents

    Lots of ground covered on today's program -- a mom whose son becomes upset when he gets hurt phsyically, an emailer who noticed that the CPS model has moved from "baskets" to "Plans," from emergent to proactive, and from "compromising" to problem-solving -- but the most moving email came from a mom whose son is still being placed in restraint and seclusion at school.

    For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory. Col 1:27  NLT 

    The claustrum is a thin, irregular, sheet-like neuronal structure hidden beneath the inner surface of the neocortex in the general region of the insula. Its function is enigmatic. 

    Primitive Christians, the Essenes, fully realized and taught the great truth that Christ was a substance, an oil or ointment contained especially in the Spinal Cord, consequently in all parts of the body, as every nerve in the body is directly or indirectly connected with the wonderful "River that flows out of Eden (the upper brain) to water the garden."

    Santa Claus, or Saint Claus, is derived from the sameroot word as "claustrum," from which "cloister" is also derived. Claustrum means a barrier, a covered place, seclusion. Cloister is referred to as a place of seclusion, and more especially as a place of seclusion for something holy, something dedicated to divinity.

    Extraordinary Tales - Surviving a Sex Cult with Bel Baca

    in Motivation

    An extraordinary interview with Bel Baca, a beautiful young woman who was born and raised in a sex cult. The cult was known as "Children of God", or COG, founded by David Berg who used the pseudonym Moses David, and lived in total seclusion and secrecy from his followers along with Karen Zerby who after his death continued to run the organization, and changed its name to "The Family International". 

    Bel, as a child who believed she was in a Christian group, was unaware the Bible's words were being twisted to suit the “prophet's”nefarious purposes. Shocking revelations during this interview include a 4-year-old Bel being witness to an orgy in which her open-marriaged parents were involved, as well as the way in which Bel came to find out the “prophet's” son violently reacted to years of sexual abuse. By the grace of something or other, Bel escaped and is a beautiful young woman on a mission to tell her story. She is in the process of writing a book to be published in early 2015. We will keep our listeners in the loop when the book is published.

    Quick Take Ohio: Revisiting Ohio's Conditions of Confinement

    in Legal

    On May 21, 2014, the State of Ohio reached a settlement that resolves similar allegations under two separate lawsuits; one stemming from ongoing issues that remained under a prior settlement reached in S.H. v. Stickrath (2008) and the second filed by the U.S. Department of Justice. The recent order requires that the Ohio Department of Youth Services (DYS) provide individualized treatment and programming for kids with mental health issues and stop the harmful practice of seclusion. DYS must also dramatically reduce, and eventually eliminate, its use of seclusion on all young people in its custody. On this episode, Al Gerhardstein, lead plaintiff counsel for S.H., discusses what changes have occurred in the past six years since S.H. was settled and the impact of the newest order.

    Have you walked away from your first love

    in Christianity

     Come with me from Lebanon, my bride.
        Leave Lebanon behind, and come.
    Leave your high mountain hideaway.
        Abandon your wilderness seclusion,
    Where you keep company with lions
        and panthers guard your safety.
    You’ve captured my heart, dear friend.
        You looked at me, and I fell in love.
        One look my way and I was hopelessly in love!
    How beautiful your love, dear, dear friend—
        far more pleasing than a fine, rare wine,
        your fragrance more exotic than select spices.
    The kisses of your lips are honey, my love,
        every syllable you speak a delicacy to savor.
    Your clothes smell like the wild outdoors,
        the ozone scent of high mountains.
    Dear lover and friend, you’re a secret garden,
        a private and pure fountain.
    Body and soul, you are paradise,
        a whole orchard of succulent fruits—
    Ripe apricots and peaches,
        oranges and pears;
    Nut trees and cinnamon,
        and all scented woods;
    Mint and lavender,
        and all herbs aromatic;
    A garden fountain, sparkling and splashing,
        fed by spring waters from the Lebanon mountains.
