This lecture teaches lodges what's needed and what's seen as important in the 21st century in Freemasonry. How to connect, how to be seen, how to be discovered and staying relevant in the digital world. Optional work shops on social media, web site creation etc can be scheduled.
This lecture includes a discussion of the Little Free Library project, a non-profit organization committed to bringing little libraries to build literacy in communities. The project will be tied into what lodges can do to build and foster community through these little libraries and how they can serve as community service projects, working with other community organizations like schools, Boy Scouts, churches, etc.

In this lecture--we'll explore these concepts and their interrelations.
