As the body of Christ, we are continually called to transformation. While we pray that God will transform us into the people of God that we are meant to be, we also seek ways to share the joy of God’s redeeming work in transforming the world. Transformation occurs both internally and in our relationships with others. The ability to transform enables the church to be relevant and dynamic in an ever-changing world. This issue highlights some of the amazing people and communities who are opening themselves up to the possibilities of transformation. We pray that God will continue to transform all our hearts, so that we may be about the work of the gospel.
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.
