A Double Scouting Holiday

February 8, 2015, is a double Scouting Holiday. Not only is it Scouting Sunday but it is also The Anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America. 2010, the Boy Scouts celebrated their 100th Anniversary. 1910 – 2010, so that means Scouting is now 105 years old in America.

The next time this will occur will be

  • February 8, 2026
  • February 8, 2032
  • February 8, 2037

One of the points in the Scout Law is a Scout is Reverent and Scout Sunday is a day set aside where at some church the Boy Scout Troop may led the services that day for the church, similar to Youth Sunday, when the youth groups led services. Also a Scout is faithful to God.

Plus in the Scout Oath, the Scout makes an Oath for Duty to God.

So some of my readers will know, I am an Eagle Scout. I attained my rank of Eagle in 1994. An Eagle Scout is the highest rank in the Boy Scouts of America. “Once an Eagle, Always an Eagle!”. I am also a lifetime member of National Eagle Scouts Association (NESA).

Scouting originals did have its roots in belief of God. Check out this Blog Entry: God the Basis Behind Scouting. You can also check out this blog post, The Scout Law, A Christian Point of View
