Soul-Bird by Yuko Ishii, mixed media self portrait. See more of her work at www.yukoishii.com. July/August 2008 Horizons
We all mutter occasionally that our minds or our bodies aren't what they used to be. Or we lament that our bodies don't look the way we want them to. But in this issue, our writers remind us to set aside these frustrations, and instead to focus on ourselves as beautiful members of God's creation.
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:
