A Visual ordo salutis?

Salvation is important, maybe even very important. I found that for along time, including right into Theological College I wasn't sure how all the doctrines of grace fitted together. The traditional Ordo Salutis was some help but I quickly realized that not all aspects of salvation are sequential and a simple list doesn't convey the difference between God's objective work and our subjective experience of his grace. I want to make this a public project probably lasting a couple of years to come up with a coherent and accurate summary of salvation. So this post is about the concept and the broad sweep of what I'm trying to achieve, we'll get into the nitty gritty of what should go where and how it should be described and explained later.
