Our images and understanding of God are limited only by our imaginations, so it should come as no surprise that art is an increasingly important tool in connecting with and celebrating our faith. Whether that art comes from your own hands or you merely celebrate and support the creations of others, we pray that this issue will both nudge and nurture the artist in you!
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.
