I have really been enjoying Jason Womack on twitter, along with several other folks in the Ojai Area, and beyond

One of the great things that Jason offered is something I want to put in motion as we move forward with a Vision at Ojai UMC. We want to filter things through the Vision, and ideas are just that. We have some things we are going to need to do to solve the problems we are facing. Jason helps set us on track for that. 
IDEA: Take 12 and 1/2 minutes (yeah, set a timer!) and generate as many ideas as you can as possible solutions to a situation your facing.
From these ideas we can filter them through the Vision and take what we need to move forward with action to achieve the Vision with some practical solutions (and maybe some impractical ones too)

At the non- denominational church I attended in Santa Barbara back in the eighties we had a regular group who would pass out tracts on State St. in downtown on Sat. mornings. These were very simple salvation messages ala Billy Graham or Campus Crusade for Christ. We always went out in pairs. Unwittingly I handed a tract to a witch- (she was dressed in plain clothes). She started to lecture us; I had a young Asian kid with me who was quite cool about everything. As the conversation was not progressing I finally just told her that Jesus loved her and died for her. Suddenly she went ballistic and took off down the street cursing God. The witch was not a success story but we tried. We did however have some successes with the street witnessing; It can be difficult to find volunteers to do this sort of thing. Now I would be difficult too as I prefer to play golf on Saturday.

There is something special/powerful about sitting down with a like-minded group of colleagues to think about making things possible.

Thank you for the links to my Twitter roll!
