Scout Sunday

The Boy Scouts of America was officially chartered on February 8th 1910, and so each February, the BSA celebrates it's birthday. In conjunction with this anniversary, the Sunday before February 8th is designated as "Scout Sunday." That's this week! While the BSA does not dictate specific religious beliefs, it is founded in a moral code that includes reverence and duty to God.
I recently found a video of President Thomas S. Monson discussing the strengths of Scouting. It was apparently put together to celebrate the BSA's centennial in 2010. I thought it an appropriate way to celebrate Scout Sunday this year. Check it out.
