Coming Out in the Pulpit: A Discussion with Cynthia Meyer
The Supreme Court has by now affirmed, of course, that gay marriage is the law of the land, and LGBTQ lifestyles, television shows, cultures, and communities are becoming more and more present -- and thus more and more visible -- in American life. How is this sea-change affecting America's churches, especially here in the middle of the country? On this edition of ST, we speak with Rev. Cynthia Meyer, a United Methodist minister. Earlier this year, she came out -- while she was preaching a homily -- to her Edgerton, Kansas, congregation. She's currently in Tulsa to speak at a few different venues. In fact, she'll be a guest homilist today (Tuesday the 15th) at Phillips Theological Seminary.
