    • @carebear3895  the communication flow or lack there of has always amazed me. The fact the professionals do not (or claim to not know) about things before the volunteers is amazing.  The last fiasco on the rate increase where the councils feigned ignorance was ridiculous.   I was told that all the SEs have a weekly conference call with national and they didn't know anything until the press released it is either incompetence or dishonest.     Or if this is how national runs the organization, Mr. mosby has lots of work to do. JMHO.
    • Yes we can.  But, again, I find it interesting how "outside"  folks like to view the "inside" folks.  In Utah, is there a "LDS Legacy Corridor" ?  Mmmmmmaybe not.  When I noted to the MD SHA folks that one of their new QLC signs  pointed in the wrong direction, they thanked me.  That was three weeks ago, the sign still points AWAY from us. Oh well.  Freezing rain tonight,  gotta cancel the big potluck amateur talent show.....

    • .....holds dominion over people when they understand little, and need simple stories and legends to comfort and explain.  But legends and the ignorance that give them birth are a house of limitations and darkness. Knowledge is freedom, freedom from ignorance and its offspring fear; knowledge is light and liberation. Knowledge that the world contains itself and its origins, and the hope of knowledge again. Dare to know, that is the motto of enlightenment."      A.C. Graying, The Skeptic's Bible....
    • At my woodbadge, there was an interfaith service / scouts own planned by the "chaplain aides" of each patrol, many of whom were actually chaplains.  In addition, information was given for the local Christian church to attend Eucharist, at a time that made it possible to do before registration; there was a shabbat blessing during friday night's meal; there were juma prayers that everyone was invited to, with a slight time adjustment.  I have been to unit events where the chartering organization was a specific church (say, Catholic or Lutheran) and a service of that denomination was planned.  I find that a lot of people appreciate the religious diversity, and seeing the different traditions' prayers in practice, rather than just a one-size-fits-all opportunity. But there is room for both.
