I’ve always been amazed at the real potential to be found in looking at something from another angle, a different point-of-view, a new perspective.  That’s probably why I’ve always loved the line from computer theorist Alan Kay:

“Perspective is worth 80 IQ points.”

One of my favorite reads in recent years was Steven Johnson’s Where Good Ideas Come From and one of the best ideas in the book is the concept of the adjacent possible–the notion that as each advance is made, new possibilities emerge.  See Where Do You Want to Go with Your Small Group Ministry.

Just when you think you’ve seen it all, an angle emerges that you’ve never noticed before.  Just when you’re reveling in the amazing potential of the small group connection, the HOST strategy comes out of nowhere.  A few months ago I heard about a way to leverage the exponential power of the HOST strategy and a church-wide campaign with a twist of Group Link.

Wanna play?  What are you trying (or considering) that may make it possible to connect beyond the usual suspects?  Who knows!  What you’re considering may be the breakthrough everyone needs!
