Current Issue

July/August 2020

The Horizons Editorial Committee chose “Ecology” as a theme for this issue in 2018 because, they said, it was past time to focus on the environment and our sacred connection to it. What better theme than ecology, studying the way living beings relate to one another and their environment? And, now, given how the first half of 2020 unfolded, what more timely and relevant theme? We continue to live into the new reality ushered in by the coronavirus. Scientists and doctors stress hand washing, mask wearing and physical distancing to keep ourselves healthy, but also to ensure that we do not unknowingly spread the virus to others. We know we are bound to one another and that we are God’s children, but beyond that, there’s so much we just don’t know about living with this pandemic.

The contributors to this issue explore the ways we are tied to one another, how the health of one impacts all. The artists and writers reflect on how we can wield power as individuals or groups to bring about meaningful change—a powerful reminder in this time when it feels simultaneously like there’s so much we can’t do, but so much we need to do and must do. May the following pages remind you of your beloved community and your vital place in it.
