Women of the Diocese of the Rio Grande

"Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same lord; and there are varieties of working, but it is the same God who inspires them all in everyone." (1 Corinthians 12:4-6)

As women of the Diocese of the Rio Grande we work to live out this promise in retreat, fellowship, study, and ministry.

Varieties of Gifts

Welcome to Varieties of Gifts.

Bishop Vono has appointed me (Cynthia Davis) 'Coordinator of Women's Ministries' in the Diocese. This blog is a place for women of the Diocese of the Rio Grande to share news about their activities, like retreats and special events. It's a place to communicate prayer requests with other women in the Diocese and learn about concerns around our Diocese.

The theme of the blog is found in the First Letter to the Corinthians: "Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same lord; and there are varieties of working, but it is the same God who inspires them all in everyone." (1 Corinthians 12:4-6)

We are each involved in ministry and use our gifts in a variety of ways for the spread of Christ's kingdom. Now there is a place where we can all share ideas and needs. Like this photo, we are linked in a circle of fellowship and support as one Body in our many minstries and gifts.

This is your blog, ladies, so share your thoughts with me about how to make it more useful!
