What you'll learn in this lecture class:

Discuss the first seven of Ben Franklin’s virtues — Temperance, Silence, Order, Resolution, Frugality, Industry, Sincerity — and answer two questions: How can we improve ourselves and how can we improve our world?

In regular small group discussions, Circle members use Franklin’s classic 13 civic virtues to spark discussion about members’ goals and aspirations — who they want to be, and what they want to contribute to the world.

Part I will cover the first seven virtues — Temperance, Silence, Order, Resolution, Frugality, Industry, Sincerity. Light Refreshments will be served.
