oola podcast Sep 23, 2020
 

 

Our working definition for #OolaFriends is this:

People close enough to see your blind spots, relationally connected enough to call them out, and interdependent enough to “do all of life” with you.

Here’s the PROBLEM with it:

We tend to change the definition of what...

#OolaFaith (Oola 5/7)

oola podcast Sep 23, 2020
 

Faith is a humble confidence that everything is going to be OK…

… it doesn’t mean everything IS OK, that everything is good… some things are outright ugly…

This can be a tough area for a lot of people…

Here’s our definition for Finance…

If any one thing is characteristic of ALL of us, it’s likely that inner struggle we feel…

“I want to do this, but I know I should do that…”

podcast redemption Sep 08, 2020

Salvation is so much larger than we typically think. Jesus not only forgives our sins (as incredible as that is), but He does so much more. In every place that Jesus bled He brought a new degree of freedom. At each point, He transformed your identity.
