May 17: The Road to Character by David Brooks
(Brooks challenges us, and himself, to re-balance the scales between our “résumé virtues”—achieving wealth, fame, and status—and our “eulogy virtues,” those that exist at the core of our being: kindness, bravery, honesty or faithfulness, focusing on what kind of relationships we have formed.)
Finding it hard to schedule a regular time to meet with friends for fellowship, study, and prayer? Perhaps a Cyber Circle will be just what you need. We have launched our very first UMW Cyber Circle designed to connect busy women through their computers or smart phones. This approach can establish a community of women who nurture and encourage one another in their faith journey. Cyber Circle meets the second Tuesday each month, 8:30-9:30pm, on Zoom. Due to online restrictions, this group is limited to 10 participants. Link for Zoom will be sent out to each participant to connect with the group. For more information, contact June Johnson.

Future studies will be voted on by the participants in Cyber Circle.
