In Episode 302 of the podcast, hosts Sara and Tim explore the theme 'Rethinking Your Focus', in the context of Advent. During this conversation, you’ll be encouraged to shift your focus from your personal experiences and desires to the teachings and actions of Jesus.

Scriptural references, particularly to the self-giving life of John the Baptist, underscore the message of refocusing toward a bigger, God-driven mission that places serving others at the forefront.

The hosts invite listeners to share how they are refocusing on Jesus this Advent season. They also look critically at commercialism and self-centeredness, considering how a redirection toward God's grand story might provide a more meaningful lens for life.
