The CubScout Promise is:
Religious Emblems Program is for Cubscouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers, Scouters and also the Girl Scouts. Because Scouting is open to all people reguardless of religious belief there is a patch that can recognize a person’s faith. It is also a patch that can be earned as a youth and adult and worn on any uniform as they progress through the ranks.
I have always have been religious, but always had issues with the followers of any religion that seem to push beliefs that are not my own. Hence, why I relate to the “A Scout is Reverent” part of the Boy Scout oath. I believe that everyone should have an open mind and heart to people of other religions and beliefs. If you walk into situations with this openeness, then a person will gain more knowledge and friends in the end.
Part of the Bear Rank for my son is to either complete the Ways we Worship or Embelms of Faith.
This is a good chance for myself and Elliot to talk about a subject we generally don’t talk about. Also, it is Knot that can be worn on all their uniforms going forward. In our Unit, there is not anyone at this time who has earned it.
My hope is to have him complete all requirements by Scout Sunday.
