Sunday Religious Services

A Scout Is…Reverent.

When I attended the Jamboree in 1997 and 2001, I was always impressed with the variety of religious services and the huge scale of attendance.  A Scout also had the opportunity to visit a service different from their own faith.  Jamboree Today had the list of religious services for Sunday, July 21, 2013 and a map of the locations.

A Scout Has…Fun.

On Sunday, in the AT&T Summit Stadium, Scouts (how’s that for words in a row with the same beginning letter…) attempted to break the world record for the most people keeping beach balls in the air.  The current record, 14,993, was set in Spain in 2012.

The AT&T Summit Stadium was the place to be on Saturday afternoon, July 20, 2013.  Jamboree Today said “King, TV Star, and Bands Rock Jamboree Show.”

Wayne Brock, Chief Scout Executive, told the crowd he wanted three things from the Jamboree participants:

  1. Make some new friends;
  2. Learn some new things;
  3. and have fun.

It surely was easy to accomplish all three for the participants at the Stadium Show.  Although you’ll miss the sounds, smells, and sights, you could have watched the live stream or you can watch the recording on your own schedule!

Mike Rowe, (also in Scoutmaster Sykuta’s Day 6 daily update), admonished the crowd that:

  1. The Dirt Patrol is alive and well (look at Mike Rowe’s T-Shirt in the picture in Mike Sykuta’s update);
  2. A Scout is clean, but not afraid to get dirty;
  3. and work smart AND hard.

Mike Rowe said he did not want anyone to be “profoundly disconnected” from others OR work.

Rowe asked the Jamboree crowd to change the way the country thinks about skills and work, to understand the value of hard work, and to not be afraid to get dirty.

That message sounds much what I recall my parents communicating to me over 40 years ago.  It’s good to hear it again.  You might casually ask your son or daughter when they return home from the Jamboree what they thought of Mike Rowe mentioning “working smart AND hard.”
