Strength in Flexibility: 35 years of Presbyterian Women

The traditional gift to mark a 35-year anniversary is coral. While it’s the gift for one of the milestone “multiple of five” anniversaries celebrated with gems and stones, coral is neither of those. Dubbed “the garden of the sea” or “the rainforest of the sea,” this slow-growing organism isn’t a plant either.

Coral serves as a vital part of its ecosystem. Like coral, Presbyterian Women is often misunderstood. Also like coral, PW is vital, strong and works together. So as we celebrate 35 years of PW, let’s celebrate not just what we’ve made possible, but how. We have guidance from the PW Purpose, which articulates the ways we can offer protection, wisdom and love to all of God’s creation. We also have the legacy of the women’s organizations in Presbyterian churches that came before us—a tradition of more than 230 years of women organizing as missionary societies, ladies’ aid groups, Women of the Church and United Presbyterian Women.

This issue of Horizons is one other way we can share how we grow and serve together as the women’s organization of our denomination. In the pages that follow you’ll find stories about instances when participants in Presbyterian Women recognized a need and volunteered to help, even when they weren’t quite sure of where that path would lead. You’ll find stories about ways to live out the PW Purpose in tried and true ways, and in ways pursued with a wing and a prayer. Just like coral, you are a vital part of PW and of God’s kingdom!
