Faith is a powerful thing.
Heavy rain soaked each of the three largest worship services this morning at the 2013 National Jamboree, but that didn’t stop Scouts and Scouters from gathering to pray together.
The LDS, Protestant and Catholic services were held back to back to back at the AT&T Summit Stadium this morning and early afternoon, meaning all three congregations were out in the elements throughout. (Other faiths held their services inside large tents elsewhere.)
At the stadium, worshippers kept dry using rainsuits, ponchos, umbrellas, and makeshift hats made from cardboard boxes or chairs. But nobody complained, preferring to soak in the message of the sermons, prayers and praise music — even as they soaked in quite a bit of rain.
