We are all familiar with the concepts of job and career, but vocation is a much misunderstood term. Christian views on work edit Many Christian theologians appeal to the Old vestment Book of Genesis regarding work. http://owenhendersonmind.universitypunjabi.org/2016/08/06/finding-the-answers-on-recognising-primary-criteria-in-job-huntingTo provoke is to call forth another’s anger. These rules are sufficient for a decision to follow the evangelical counsels, as they may be practised even in the world. Religious seek to follow Christ more closely by publicly professing the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience in a recognized religious order, giving public witness of their consecration by wearing a religious habit, and they live in community. ContinueBut a vocation is more than an ordinary call. The higher the state of life the more clearly do we find the positive action of Providence in the choice. Nor is there any trace of an exception in the Fathers of the Church : they insist on the general application of the evangelical counsels, and on the importance of following them without delay; and on the other hand, they declare that the choice is free, without danger of incurring the loss of God’s favour. These timeless Christian practices can turn both our successes and our failures into learning experiences that draw us closer toward gods purpose for our lives.

Today, the council serves thousands of youth through crews, packs, posts, ships, teams and troops. For every 100 boys who join Scouting, 18 will develop a hobby that will last through their adult lives, eight will enter a vocation that was learned through the merit badge system, and at least one will use his Scouting skills to save his own life or someone elses. The Boy Scout Golf Classic helps to raise financial support for local children involved in Scouting. We believe in empowering our youth, said Richard Ottinger, 2016 Boy Scout Golf Chair. This event is just one way we offer the community a chance to have fun, while raising funds for programs designed to educate our children and prepare them for life. This year, the goal is to raise $30,000 at the event; with the help from sponsors such as John Fain, Portfolio Recovery Associates, Norfolk Southern and Southern Automotive Group, the organization is well on its way. Registration for the tournament will begin at 10:30 a.m. and tee time is at 12:00 p.m. Entrance fees are $250 per player, and include lunch, greens fees, range balls and cart fees. All proceeds benefit the Boy Scouts of America Tidewater Council. We are grateful for the support of our sponsors, the players and volunteers to help make this event the best its ever been, added Ottinger.
