Scout Sunday

Scout Sunday is a Sunday set aside to remember the great things that were at one time inherent in the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of America. As a former Scout leader, I held a couple of services to remind the Scouts and their parents of the great responsibilities found in the Scout Law:

A Scout is:

  • TRUSTWORTHY. Tell the truth and keep promises. People can depend on you.
  • LOYAL. Show that you care about your family, friends, Scout leaders, school, and country.
  • HELPFUL. Volunteer to help others without expecting a reward.
  • FRIENDLY. Be a friend to everyone, even people who are very different from you.
  • COURTEOUS. Be polite to everyone and always use good manners.
  • KIND. Treat others as you want to be treated. Never harm or kill any living thing without good reason.
  • OBEDIENT. Follow the rules of your family, school, and pack. Obey the laws of your community and country.
  • CHEERFUL. Look for the bright side of life. Cheerfully do tasks that come your way. Try to help others be happy.
  • THRIFTY. Work to pay your own way. Try not to be wasteful. Use time, food, supplies, and natural resources wisely.
  • BRAVE. Face difficult situations even when you feel afraid. Do what you think is right despite what others might be doing or saying.
  • CLEAN. Keep your body and mind fit. Help keep your home and community clean.
  • REVERENT. Be reverent toward God. Be faithful in your religious duties. Respect the beliefs of others.
