LDS CHURCH ANNOUNCES INDEPENDENT ACTIVITY PROGRAMS BEGINNING 2020 in Open Discussion - Program Posted August 24 2 minutes ago, bearess said: I’d say that the fact that such significant changes to BSA had to be made for LDS units means the program was never a great fit. For many decades, the Scouting program was a wonderful fit for LDS boys. It is BSA - not the church that has changed in its values and focus. Thus, the program is not the great fit now that it was for so very long. It makes many of us LDS Scouters and Scouting families very sad. Watch this inspiring video produced by the church just a few years ago to commemorate the 100 year partnership between LDS and BSA. Then tell me that Scouting was never a great fit.
