Little Barn of BIG ideas Calendar
|COVID 19 Update: Vince and I wanted to check in with all of you and see how everyone is doing. Our community was just coming together before the social distancing began and we would like to create a weekly space for you to check-in if you are interested. This will give us the opportunity to have inspiration midweek and also build our community. We have discussed having our “meetings” continue as many have done through Zoom conferencing. |
The link is below. Some topics: What is keeping you inspired? What are you doing differently? Have any BIG ideas emerged for you? This is a time of great transition and we are here to support this community.
We have been doing a lot of unplanned renovations to the little Barn. The recent storms have made our “future project” to redo the barn foundation more critical, so we have rebuilt the north foundation. A huge improvement! These changes will secure our space for many generations to come! If you are interested, our property (though muddy right now in spots, so wear boots) is a wonderful resource to walk and get with nature if you need a space. Just text me at 302-521-8789 to set up a time…we know social distancing is important and being outside is a great way to get out safely.
Something new is being birthed into this world. This is an opportunity to build the beautiful world we hoped for, and right now that means doing the inner work to understand who we are and why we are here. I recently finished my book, The Civil Graces Project, before this crisis, and it has taken on a life of its own. I am continuing to write how we can use this transformative moment to redesign our world for the better: https://civilgraces.com/2020/03/24/bearing-our-crown/
One of our participants and I were talking about the analogy of the “eye of the needle” or the “camel’s gate” where the traveler had to unpack all their loads in order to enter. In a very real way, we are unpacking our lives and are discovering what is essential. Having conversations on the BIG ideas is an essential part of our journey…we hope you will join us as often as you can. We will reschedule our little barn events as soon as it becomes possible.
In the meantime, if you need anything, please let us know!

BIG Idea Speaker Series (Postponed): Come join us at the big table in the little Barn of Big Ideas for our first “Big Idea Speaker Series.” We welcome Kathleen Koch, a best-selling author who for 18 years was an award-winning CNN Washington correspondent covering the White House, Pentagon, and Capitol Hill as well as numerous disasters including 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina. She founded and now heads LeadersLink, the first nonprofit to harness and share elected officials’ disaster lessons learned to help other communities better prevent, prepare for and recover from similar crises.
Koch speaks around the country and internationally on disaster and resilience. She MC’s major events and moderates high-level discussions on the most pressing issues facing our world today.
Koch anchored two prize-winning documentaries on the recovery of her hometown, Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, and recorded its journey in a best-selling book, Rising from Katrina: How My Mississippi Hometown Lost It All and Found What Mattered, which was named Best Nonfiction in the Southeast Region in the 2011 Independent Publisher Book Awards.
