About This Issue
Giving and Receiving Care

There is no shortage of publications eager to tell you how to improve your health. Bookshelves, magazine racks and websites display publications lauding the latest fitness trends (everything from the spiritually oriented yoga to muscle-forging crossfit), diets (paleo and gluten-free) and superfoods (acai berries and flax seed). Horizons isn’t one of those publications. True, this magazine does talk about health, but not in the crossfit, acai berry way.

Presbyterian women are caregivers, offering everything from prayers of encouragement and healing to rides to medical appointments and a caring presence for someone who’s not at full speed. Caregiving for Presbyterian women is ingrained in so much of our work, so much of our purpose statement. Every part of our purpose speaks to being better together and knowing that, unless we’re all well and present, we’re not actually well.

To that end, we organize food deliveries for people in our church communities who have limited mobility; we knit blankets for newborns—our children, grandchildren and even babies in parts of the world we’ve never seen. At times, we’re the caregivers; at other times, we’re the recipients of caregiving.

2014–2015 Horizons Bible Study

Reconciling Paul:
A Contemporary Study of 2 Corinthians

by Elizabeth Hinson-Hasty

Suggestions for Leaders
by Irene Pak

Paul's writings are some of the most influential in Christianity. Revisiting the struggles Paul faced and the authenticity and integrity of his theology is an essential task for churches today in the midst of great change. Paul, like us, wrestled with and questioned his faith as he tried to live as authentically as possible in an ancient world that, like ours, was also in the midst of great change. What can we learn from visiting 2 Corinthians and considering Paul’s theology and ideas as they relate to the context of our time? Elizabeth Hinson-Hasty invites us all to read Paul’s letter afresh in light of today’s issues. Concepts of shared partnership, power in weakness, healing, reconciliation, love, and a new apostolate all figure prominently in her reading of Paul.
