About This Issue
Human Trafficking

Millions of people—men, women and children—around the world are victims of human trafficking. This modern-day incarnation of slavery deprives them of their freedom, income and right to live as beloved children of God. This issue of Horizons offers a glimpse at the scope and complexity of human trafficking, organizations and individuals who have committed themselves to ending trafficking, and the responsibiity we have for restructturing our legal, social and economic systems to foster well-being for all people.

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
