In September 2010, 19 Presbyterian women from various synods traveled to South Dakota, hoping to learn from their Native American sisters and brothers about the issues most important to Native Americans, and to build relationships with them. Along the way, participants learned in a very personal way about the historical trauma and grief within the American Indian community, and witnessed grace, perseverance and hope there. This issue of Horizons offers you a glimpse into the pain and joy of Native American communities. We hope it also encourages you to look fo ways to partner with and share the joy of the Lord with our Native sisters and brothers.
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.
