Dan Roam really has introduced to me something that I’ve always wanted to have but didn’t know what it was. The idea of visual thinking is awesome. I really only have one application that I got from the book that I’m already using but I do know as the summer goes by I will be doing a lot more with this book’s ideas.
The one app is to spread things out so that I can have an overall view (through pictures) of my ministry. I hope to not only use this idea for my own eval but also to present it to the sponsor team at our next retreat. I think it will be fresh, different, and a good way for us to work through the ministry for this last year (not to say I hope we can look at a 3 year review as well).
