Episode 450: Jonathan Pokluda on the Power of Confession, Finding Unity within a Community, and Sensing God Move

One of my favorite dudes and pastors, Jonathan Pokluda is back in the studio to talk about sin, confession, and the partnership between counseling and discipleship. I love learning from JP and this feels like such an important conversation. I know you’re going to love it and his new book Why Do I Do What I Don’t Want to Do?
