Horizons is the magazine (and Bible study) by and for Presbyterian Women. It’s the resource for helping you explore where faith and life connect. Focusing on issues of faith—from the interplay between literature and theology to violence against women—Horizons gives you insights from women around the world and inspiration to live boldly. Within the pages of Horizons, you will find a wealth of information you need to live in faith as a Presbyterian Woman. Inside you will find mission stories, ideas for justice and peace work, information about Presbyterian Women and our denomination, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), devotions, Bible study resources (to support the annual PW/Horizons Bible study) and a short Bible study on the issue’s theme! Horizons is just for you because Horizons is about you and your sisters in faith, amazing Presbyterian Women!

Rejoice in Hope: PWs Celebrate Hope, Joy and Community

If you watched PW’s Online Church-wide Gathering event and Business Meeting, you will recognize many of those leaders in the pages of this issue. The sermon preached by Diane Moffett and the plenary address from Irene Pak Lee are reprinted here, along with greet-ings given by the new PW Churchwide moderators and the Co-moderator of the 224th General Assembly (2020). Carissa Herold writes an overview of the items voted on at the triennial business meeting and Charles A. Wiley provides insight into our consideration of one of those items, whether or not to change language in the PW Purpose from “kingdom” to “kin-dom.”

The PW Churchwide Gathering planning team tried to take into account all the heartaches in our world as we selected the event’s theme. We couldn’t predict how or when God will intervene to make things better, but we were assured that, through the work and witness of Christ, God will fulfill the promise to reach out to all of us with grace and love. We rejoice in the knowledge that peace and justice will, eventually, prevail- and we find deep hope in that.
