    Lesbian minister shifts from Fundamentalism to a religion that embraces all

    in Spirituality

    Rev. Cynthia Andrews-Looper (“Pastor Cindy” as she is affectionately called by those who love her), is a native of Greenville, SC. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Masters in Ministry from Southern Wesleyan University.


    In January 1996, after much soul-searching, she moved from Greenville, SC to Nashville, TN. In August of that same year, she started a Bible study that grew into what is today Holy Trinity Community Church, an open and affirming church of the United Church of Christ. 


    During the summer of 2014, while on a two month sabbatical, Pastor Cindy heard and followed God’s call to step down as Sr. Pastor of Holy Trinity and start a new ministry, Ignite Your Soul Now. She completed her ministry at Holy Trinity in October of this year. She is currently writing a book about her life story which she plans to title: TRUST GOD OR GO CRAZY, my journey from fundamentalist fear and insanity to hope and peace in Christ. This journey includes her call to ministry as a woman raised in a conservative Baptist church, the reconciliation of her faith and sexual orientation and amazing stories of God's faithfulness in the trying times of life.


    Pastor Cindy’s personal encounters with God’s love are the fire that fuels her ministry. She says, “One day, in my early thirties, I came face to face in spirit with a holy God and found an unconditional love that changed me deeply and inspired me to share this hope with others. It is that passion to share God’s love that keeps me alive spiritually. We serve a God whose arms are open to anyone who will walk into them. I want individuals to find God’s loving embrace through my ministry. God is the Source of all that is. God is the Source of all abundance and love. God’s desire is that we live withf absolute love and complete abundance, instead of fear and lack. My message is one of hope, love and light.

    XANDERMONIUM - Comic Book Heroes? - NOW loves PP!

    in Politics

    Hr1  Useless facts, like... Did you know a porcupine floats in water?


    Jobs report. Yep, still no good. More layoffs.


    Xander Gibb brings a little Xandermonium to the show. Liberals, Cecil the Lion, abortion, Planned Parenthood, word police, and political correctness run amok.


    Hr2  University indoctrination? Do you know what your kids are learning? Trust me, it's anti-American. Steven Crowder does man-on-the-street.


    Politicizing comic book heros. Superman says #blacklivesmatter. Iceman and Green Lantern are gay. Really? Can't we just let kids be kids? Political indoctrination.


    Discrimination: Indian restaurant fined for trying to hire Indian waiter. Oh the horror!


    Hr3  President of the National Organization for Women (NOW) Terry O'Neill says, "Moms love Planned Parenthood."


    Feminist man embraces open marriage for his wife. Further erosion of the marriage foundation. I guess marriage "vows" don't really matter if you change your mind.


    Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?

    There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.

    Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.

    But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!

  • Everything "Relationships" & YOU At The University Of Love

    in Family

    So what makes EVERYTHING “RELATIONSHIPS” AT THE UNIVERSITY OF LOVE, different from any other talk radio show on relationships?


    Socialbutterfli: 
    • Well I’m glad you asked, there are many differences that you will  notice right away.  First of all the show and it’s topic begin at the beginning of each week,  right here on social media. Long before my show air you will get a peek at that weeks topic.  The beginning of each week  I will post songs, movies, and actual posts from you guys on my page, that will be the source of my topic that week.   You are encouraged to listen, watch and even have open discussions on my pages if you’d like.


    Instead of talking randomly about relationship issues, I have chosen to be a tad bit more creative by using songs, videos, movies, books and social media posts about the challenges that each of has most likely confronted,  at some point in our own  lives.  I think that this will eliminate reopening many of the emotional scars that we might be still dealing with.   The issues in the resources that I’m using might be very familiar, but they are not about you, they are about the characters and those that inspired its work from the artist or actor.  The goal is to allow us to speak about and peek into the message of the work, while trying to find answers and even revelations about our own choices in life.


    • Every Friday night at 9:00 pm est the show will air for 2 hours, you are encouraged to join in on the conversations if you’d like about our topics of the night.  We will respect the privacy of others by not discussing  real people, no names will be spoken on the show even in reference to your point.   This is not a hate session, but an opportunity for us to take a closer look at ourselves  and how we affect the outcome of our relationships.
