About This Issue
Joined and Knitted Together in Love:
PW Global Exchange to Eastern Europe

Join 28 of your sisters and several PC(USA) mission coworkers on a visit to church partners in Eastern and Central Europe. The 2008 Global Exchange traveled to the Czech Republic, Hungary and Carpath-Ukraine to renew and build relationships with women and church partners. In addition to the Exchange, a smaller group of six journeyed on to Russia. The Exchange focused on ending all forms of violence and advocating for the rights of women and children, particularly among the Roma people. Let this issue take you to the places visited by the participants, hear thoughts and conversations that occurred, and help you make connections with our PC(USA) and ecumenical partners in faith.

How to Use This Magazine

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.

The purpose of Horizons magazine is the same as the purpose of our publisher, Presbyterian Women:

Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit we commit ourselves:

  • to nurture our faith through prayer and
    Bible study
  • to support the mission of the church worldwide
  • to work for justice and peace
  • to build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and witnesses to the promise of God's kingdom
