Blue Ocean Perspectives

These perspectives guide us as we delve into what faith is to us and others and are fleshed out in Dave Schmelzer's book Blue Ocean Faith. They help us address the "How" questions as we delve into our spirituality and faith. This is sometimes referred to as our "vibe".

  1. WE NEED CONNECTION MORE THAN WE NEED ANSWERS.
  2. EVERYONE IS US.
  3. THERE REALLY IS SOMETHING GOING ON OUT THERE.
  4. BY AND LARGE, WE FLOW EASILY WITHIN SECULAR CULTURE.
  5. THERE’S NO BAD NEWS IN CONNECTING WITH GOD.
  6. JESUS HAS PROVEN TO BE A PARTICULARLY HELPFUL NORTH STAR.
  7. WE GROW BY TAKING OUR OWN UNIQUE, HIGH-RISK JOURNEY.
  8. MY DRIVE TO JUDGE OTHER PEOPLE IS A BIG PROBLEM.
  9. EVERYTHING IS SHOT THROUGH WITH MEANING.

The Blue Ocean World podcast addresses their take on some of the perspectives in different episodes.
