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!

In all things, God
We all know our faith lives don’t happen exclusively in the pews on Sunday morning. Despite knowing that God is always with us, it’s hard to always feel God with us. It’s easy to feel God in the sanctuary, when we’re awash with the hymns and rituals of our faith. It’s harder to feel God’s presence when we’re knee-deep in the mundane—another weed to pull, another staff meeting, another rally, another floor to sweep, another application to complete, another email to write.
All too often, we separate the spiritual from the secular. Yet Ephesians 4:6 tells us that God is “above all and through all and in all.”
The contributors to this issue, representing a variety of skills and passions, explore how God and God’s vision for us is ever-present, flowing through every part of our beautiful, gritty, sticky, demanding, baffling, frustrating, glorious world. We might describe ourselves as mathematicians or writers or advocates, but we’re all part of the mystery and marvel of God’s interconnected creation. We just need to pay attention and feel God’s presence.
So whether you just came from the garden, the doctor’s office, church or the airport, settle in to celebrate God in all things.
