An Attempt @ Organization
One of our ongoing problems in our ministry is the calendar. Who's doing what? When was that due? Did we cancel such and such? Somehow we've never really been able to create a good, team-wide master calendar. Until now. The picture to the right is our attempt at organizing our team calendar. We stole the idea from Josh Treece, and customized it a bit. It's really nothing new, just a big wall-sized calendar in our 'Surf' Office that will serve as our master calendar. We even pre-printed a bunch of color coded magnetic stickers with events, activities, recurring dates etc. that we can use to keep it looking tidy. They are each hung separately and can be moved and re-arranged in any order we want. Everybody can look at the calendar, but only one person is allowed to make changes. If you want to add or delete something from the calendar, it goes through the proper channel first so she can make sure that the calendar on the wall truly reflects the 'master' calendar in our church-wide system.
The bummer is that my 20-year excuse of "gosh, I forgot to look at my calendar" will no longer be acceptable.
