About This Issue
Native Americans and the USA Mission Experience

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.

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
