Foothills congregants--Welcome to our visioning data! Click on the tabs below to view specific parts of the data. For ease of use, we have organized the individual session data (tabs furthest to the right) into values (from stories of experiencing the holy), highlights (from memories of Foothills living into courageous love), and wishes for the future. Highlights and wishes are further divided into "within", "among", and "beyond": stories and wishes that are about the individual (within), the congregation (among), and the wider community (beyond). If you have specific questions about the data, please contact Sara Steen, board member and Queen of Data, at professor.steen@gmail.com

1. Values (listed in second tab, also included in Wordle--separate file)If you'd like to review the highlights or wishes ouside of the categories and themes I've put them in, they are consolidated into two tabs ("highlights" and "wishes").Highlights34778222148

2. Magazine covers (not in spreadsheet, all included in separate powerpoint, physical copies will be available at our retreat)One thing that Laura mentioned to us is that it can be useful to compare the kinds of themes that arise in the highlights (past) with those that arise in the wishes (future).Wishes57052355220

How the data was organized:Minor notes:

1. Move all values into one tab ("Values"); created a wordle (separate file) where the size of the words are representative of how frequently they appeared.The green boxes don't mean anything special--just a weird formatting thing that we can't get rid of.

2. Move all highlights into one tab ("Highlights); categorize each highlight according to whether it seems to be about "within" (individual), "among" (congregation), or "beyond" (outside community/world). Note: some highlights seemed to fit into two categories (e.g., among and beyond). For those highlights, I created "primary" and "secondary" categories. Those italicized highlights within the category tabs are the "secondary" highlights. Some highlights/wishes seemed to be about multiple themes, so they may appear in different places within a given tab.
11
3. Move categorized highlights into three separate tabs ("highlights within", "highlights among", and "highlights beyond"). Within each tab, create themes (across the top row) that seem to represent the underlying sentiment behind each highlight. Place each highlight into the most appropriate theme. For those highlights/wishes that seemed to fit in multiple categories (e.g., within and among), you may notice that the theme in a given tab doesn't seem to fit--remember that the theme in a particular tab relates to the part of that highlight/wish that fits in that tab.

4. Move all wishes into one tab ("Wishes); categorize each wish according to whether it seems to be about "within" (individual), "among" (congregation), or "beyond" (outside community/world). Note: some wishes seemed to fit into two categories (e.g., among and beyond). For those wishes, I created "primary" and "secondary" categories. Those italicized highlights within the category tabs are the "secondary" wishes.A few highlights and wishes fell into an "uncategorized" category--I tried to use this mostly when the intent behind the highlight/wish was unclear; I didn't want to assume that every comment about our decision to provide sanctuary was inspiring because "we did something difficult", so when a highlight/wish appeared without explanation, I didn't categorize it.

5. Move categorized wishes into three separate tabs ("wishes within", "wishes among", and "wishes beyond"). Within each tab, create themes (across the top row) that seem to represent the underlying sentiment behind each wish. Place each wish into the most appropriate theme
