About This Issue
The Grace of Aging

Aging. Does that word create an ache in your knee or a song in your soul? Maybe both?

Granted, aging often means a weakening body—a new ache or cloudier vision. But aging can also have a way of strengthening our spirits. Each day on earth, we've had an opportunity to build our relationship with God, ur families and friends and the world around us; to find our strengths and passions; to overcome challenges. So while our bodies may be slowing down, our spirits remain lively, engaged.

And that spirited engagement with the world is certainly true of Presbyterian women. This issue highlights how Presbyterian women (just like you) are embracing the grace of aging—the opportunity to live out their faith and passions in loving community.

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
