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.
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.
Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit we commit ourselves:
