It has been over 8 years now that I have been a part of this scouting forum and have had a great time conversing with, debating with, and arguing with some over the issues concerning a program we all love and give our blood, sweat, and tears to. I have always looked at being a leader in scouting to be a sacred trust with the CO, parents and the youth we serve to give it all we are and to make our units and youth better, stronger, a with a vision of service and giving back for all the blessings we have received from our Creator. Scouting has and always will be for me a voyage of discovery and treasures which will last a lifetime.
I have recently been asked by our church board to assume the title and duties of Pastor where I currently have been serving as the associate pastor. So now I enter into yet another sacred journey that will keep me even more busy than I am currently. So I have decided to close my association with this great forum after all these years to free up more time to pursue my new duties.
I just want to let all of you know I have been honored by getting to know all of you dedicated scouters, even those who I have disagreed with, and wish you all continued success with your scouting experiences. Peace and blessings to all of you. Goodbye and Venture On!
