On Sunday, February 14, 2010, I headed to the 11a service at Cascade United Methodist Church (CUMC). For some reason, I took my camera with me. I was surprised to learn that part of the day — a portion of the service, a gathering after the service, and a tree planting — was devoted to the 100 Years of Scouting of the Boy Scouts. I snapped some photos of a thriving CUMC Boy Scout Ministry:
Back home after service, I looked for “The Outdoor Code” of the Boy Scouts:
As an American, I will do my best to -
- Be clean in my outdoor manners
- Be careful with fire
- Be considerate in the outdoors, and
- Be conservation minded.
Speaking of being considerate and conservation-minded, read a bit of Scout history in an article that goes back to the 1940s titled “Negro Youth and Scouting, A Character Education Program” by Stanley A. Harris.
Consider taking your son to Join the Boy Scouts.
