October 2012 Dateline
While we often raise up the gifts of our larger chapters, who have the resources to offer many programs and services locally and nationally, the evening I spent in Rochester reminded me how blessed Dignity is to be a diverse organization, with members and chapters that have, in the words of I Corinthians, "varieties of gifts, but one Spirit…and there are varie-ties of activities, but it is the same God that empowers them all in everyone."
. . . And to all our smaller chapters, thank you for the min-istry and witness you provide, week after week, month after month, year after year. The ripple you make in the water spreads wider than you know.
