SORT BY Relevancy
A recent report said that two gay NFL players are refusing to come out publicly as gay because they don't want a lot of media attention for any kind of big announcement. It's an interesting revelation that both reflects and belies what we think we know about professional athletes.
On the one hand they want all the attention they can get to maximize exposure. Exposure means more of the all-mighty dollar that so many of them seek in the short span of their careers. On the flip side, we often hear that athletes don't want to be known as the "gay athlete" but just want to be known for their athletic accomplishments.
We discuss the idea of the media keeping athletes in the closet, and also the impact that big-name professional athletes can have when they come out publicly.
Plus, we have the growing attention being paid to trans issues in sports and the generosity of one young gay professional athlete named Robbie Rogers.
As lesbian or two mom families, the cost of creating a family can be very costly. Then once kids come into the picture, a whole new set of financial considerations and costs arise, like maternity leave, diapers, schooling, college. All this on top of retirement planning. How do we handle all that? How much should we save? Are there investment options that work particularly well for us? What if we're not legally married, does that impact which options we choose?

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.
