March 2011 Dateline
DignityUSA and its communities have proven people can be a “parish” without the sponsorship of a Bishop who has rejected us. Is it possible we are that “stone which has been rejected and has become the cornerstone”? I think it is indeed possible. This is our future – to come forward in pride, honesty, inclusion, forgiveness, compassion, and witness to the God of Love, rather than blame. . . .
We must come out of our “tombs” of security and welcome all who seek this inclusive Church. My respected friends, that means enlarging the tent to include more than LGBT people. We can only be enriched by doing so.
