UMW Reading Program 2019

 

The Reading Program is to encourage United Methodist Women:

  • to expand understanding of participation in God's mission;
  • to increase sensitivity to all human beings--their needs, interests, and contemporary life;
  • to encourage critical thinking about issues facing humanity today;
  • to grow in understanding of scripture as it relates to Christian faith in contemporary life;
  • to enhance self-knowledge and to act from that knowledge;
  • to strengthen involvement in local and global Christian mission.

The Women's Division recommends a diverse range of books with the intention of broadening exposure to a variety of concepts. The Division does not intend that accept each word or idea contained within each volume. Some books you may agree with. Some you may not. Either is all right. At the least you know the Women's Division cares and wants you to be a knowledgeable and caring Christian about the issues of the day.
