A SCOUT IS REVERENT
“A Scout is reverent. He is reverent toward God. He is faithful in his religious duties and respects the convictions of others in matters of custom and religion.”
To encourage members to grow stronger in their faith, religious groups have developed Religious Emblem programs. The Boy Scouts of America has approved these programs and allows the emblems to be worn on the official BSA uniform. The various religious groups administer their own emblem program.
For the BSA’s Religious Emblems informational video (for all faiths) that gives a great background on why emblems are important to our youth, please click the link below: www.praypub.org/scouts.wmv
Protestant and Independent Christian Churches

A CENTURY OF HONOR

As you may know, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS) is the largest, longest running sponsor of the BSA. There has been some pretty cool centennial celebration related stuff going on, and the program they had at the Jamboree was phenomenal!
On Tuesday, October 29, at 7 PM MDT there will be a live online broadcast from Salt Lake City, Utah. Click here for more info and to watch the live broadcast.
Additionally, if you explore the website a bit, you can see an online exhibit of Norman Rockwell Scouting paintings as well as other interesting information.
For those Scout history buffs, you can purchase commemorative items such as patches, neckerchief, a commemorative book, and more! Check it out: http://shop.ldsbsa.org/new/
