The August 2023 edition of PW NewsBytes includes an overview of the various editions and support pieces for Sacred Encounters (the new 2023–2024 PW/Horizons Bible study), a spotlight on PW’s Annual Mission Fund and the resources available to promote and receive financial gifts, and opportunities to take action for justice and peace.
Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves
- to nurture our faith through prayer and Bible study,
- to support the mission of the church worldwide,
- to work for justice and peace, and
- to build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom.

“When I was in my 20s, I did a year of mission work in a small neighborhood. The program, Mission Year, had a motto: Love God. Love people. Nothing else matters. I remember thinking that so many things mattered. What was I going to do with my life? Was I going to make it through the year? Why weren’t we allowed to have televisions? Then something happened—I was forced to get to know my neighbors.” To read more of this story by Micah Rose Emerson as it appears in the 2021 Summer issue of Horizons Magazine, click to order or subscribe.
