Lillies of the Field 2, Lucy Janjigian.
There may be nothing to fear but fear itself, but that still leaves plenty to keep us occupied. And as Lara Blackwood Pickrel points out in her article, fear tends to be sticky-it lurks, silently shaping us and the way that we engage with the world. So even if we manage to hold ourselves to one fear, we'll feel fear's grip in a multitude of ways.In this issue, you'll encounter a number of suggestions for coping with fear. You might just need to examine a particular fear and listen to your instincts befor you can shelve a fear. Or maybe creating a disaster plan will help allay fears of natural disaster. Maybe your fears are urging you toward action on a particular issue. Thankfully, whatever our fears, we can find hope in God's abiding love.
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.
