Old Stone Well Farm

A Quick Hello

Busy but blessed weekend. Yes, this was yesterday.

I had the honor of speaking at the local women’s group. Such a joy as I shared how to build authentic community in an age of technology…taking cues from the local Amish who perfected the art of quilting bees and circle letters (I did a video on this last summer. Check it out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbgm93zcN6g)

And, of course, I had to close with a quote from Wendell Berry who once said, “Community is not made just by communication. It is a practical circumstance. It is composed of people who have a place in common. But it is made by people’s willingness to be neighbors, good and faithful servants, to one another.”

Off to church now…so our time at Old Stone Well Farm will be coming earlier in the week! In the meantime, what does “community” mean to you?

I would love to hear your thoughts as the word is being thrown around a lot.
