After demanding the Salvation Army pledge a donation to a pro-LGBTQ organization, Ellie Goulding has decided that she will be performing at the Cowboys' Thanksgiving Day halftime show. According to the Salvation Army, Goulding's threat to pull out of the Cowboys halftime show shed light on the misconceptions surrounding who the organization serves.
“When I felt this thing break [opening week] and I was going into the locker room, I just realized, you know, 'God this wasn't exactly what I was thinking when I came to Jacksonville.' Obviously, you come here and you want to create a culture and impact people but at the end of the day [I said,] ‘God, if this is the journey you want me to go on, I'm going to glorify you in every action, good or bad,’” Jaguars Quarterback Nick Foles said after injuring his shoulder during opening week this year.
For Super Bowl-winning NFL coach and former NFL player Tony Dungy, the successes that he's enjoyed in life are all because of Jesus. "I've had a lot of roles as a student, a son, [an] athlete, coach, father, all of those, but Christ comes first and that directs everything. I think that’s how I keep my balance,” Dungy told Christian Headlines in a sit-down interview.
