Boy Scout Sunday
I am grateful to the UMM and the Scout leadership for delaying Scout Sunday until I could return from my Holy Land Pilgrimage.
I pray that our community connection with the Boy Scouts and all other community groups that we host on this campus will grow closer as we partner to enhance the quality of life in Woodstock and Cherokee County.
I was listening to an NPR podcast interview of a “greyhat.” An electronic hacker that offers their services to the very companies they hack to reveal their weaknesses (he could hack into drones and self-driving cars). When he was a hacker in earnest (for illicit gain), he was caught and convicted. The judge banned him from the internet for LIFE! Even though he had that sentence commuted after 3 years of good behavior, he was grateful for the three years off the net. He went outside, he discovered another world in nature. I hope we always support the training and life skills offered in scouting. It means something wonderful to be “well-rounded.” Scouts, I hope today that your families re-commit to a deep understanding of “reverent” for you and your children.
