Scout Sunday

Scout Sunday – A Scout is Reverent, this is one of the points in the Scout Law. Because a Scout is Reverent he honors the sabbath. This day falls on a Sunday on or around the Anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America. #ScoutSunday

Scout Sunday - Snoopy Scout and Woodstock Scouts

The Sunday on or before the Anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America (February 8) is when it is celebrated. However, in the United Methodist Church, Scout Sunday is the second Sunday of February. Not to mention, your church can choose which Sunday during February to celebrate as well.


Snoopy has become an icon for the Scouting movement along with the little Woodstock birds.

Scout Law

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.

Scout Oath

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

I’m an Eagle!

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).

God the Basis behind Scouting

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

Well … One thing though, I am sad to see the direction that the Boy Scouts of America is turning to. They are turning their backs on God too.

However, I am sad to see a lot of the new changes in the Boy Scouts of America. It is become less and less based on the founding principles.
