The theme of the sermon was unconditional love. Patriotis said, “Paddle Jam has brought together people from all kinds of philosophical, religious and political backgrounds. This is not an attempt to change anybody. We’re going to be the mass of humanity that God so loved, he sent his only son. Love to paddle, paddle to love.”

Patriotis praised everyone who provided support for the event and said the Coast Guard was on board from day one.

A follow-up meeting is planned to review Paddle Jam and begin planning for next year. Proceeds from the event go towards helping “at risk” children, youth and families in need through the Outreach Ministries of the Apalachicola-St. George Island Cooperative Parish, where Patriotis pastors.
