About This Issue
Many women say (with pride), "This isn't your mother's PW!" And yet, PW at any leel wouldn't be what it is (or the daughters who they are) without the mothers of PW.
This issue of Horizons celebrates the women who came before us—their dedication to our communities, passion for social justice, concern for those in need and faithfulness that spanned generations. Thank you for giving us an organization we're proud to call our own!
Horizons is the magazine of Presbyterian Women. It is planned and designed for individuals and PW circles, newcomers and longtime participants in the organization. You'll notice resources are scattered throughout the magazine—in sidebars, boxes and sometimes entire articles—because Presbyterian Women is made up of leaders, both current leaders and women with leadership potential. Participants in Presbyterian Women are also active—in their congregation, community and world—so we work to include ways you can respond to what you read in Horizons.
Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit we commit ourselves:
