For billions of people around the world, living a simple life is not a choice; poverty makes it their reality. At the other extreme, there are many people who feel bogged down and drained by their accumulated stuff and lengthy to-do lists. For this issue, a variety of writers offer suggestions on how to scale back, and in so doing, find more joy, a stronger connection with God, and a more just and sustainable way of life.
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.
