Others-Focused – Podcast Season 1, Episode 3

by Jesse Garner

Being others-focused is all about being focused outward and not on ourselves. We do this intentionally through everything from how we welcome staff to the Pine Cove team to how we model for our campers loving others the way they want to be loved.

Our hosts connected with staff alumni Hannah “Kicking and Screaming” and Brian “The Dark Fright” Roy to learn how their lives continue to be about living others-focused through the ministry Mercy Street. Our producer Jesse sat down with Craig to define “clumpy oatmeal” and how “there you are/here I am” communicates putting others first. 

How are you striving to live others-focused during quarantine? Tell us about it in the comments! A few ideas to get you started: send a card or letter to a friend or family member who’s quarantined alone, call an elderly relative, bake cookies for a neighbor and leave them on their porch, or surprise someone in your household by doing the dishes without being asked!

Guys Who Bring Guitars to Camp

This episode of the podcast is brought to you by guys who bring guitars to camp! What would free time be without someone pulling out their guitar to see who they get to gather on the grass around them? No matter what song you play, you’ll soon find yourself surrounded by your fellow campers! Those girls may not be able to tell if you’re talented or not, but you’re the only one with a guitar right now, and that’s all that matters. Anyway, here’s Wonderwall.
