About This Issue
Recreation and Re-creation

On the heels of Easter and the beginnings of spring, we see signs of new life all around us. We thank God for bringing forth new life, and re-creating what was already in place. In this issue, we'll explore just a few of the ways that God reshapes us and our world, and the ways we respond to that reformation. Several writers share how they experience re-creation through recreation—activities in leisure time that strengthen their faith and connect them to their comunities.

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
