Do you ever feel...

Do you ever feel, when you're trying to reconcile official BSA and LDS guidance (to say nothing of the local "flavor"), like Ned Flanders, who, when a hurricane destroyed his home, remarked that he had "done everything the Bible says, even the stuff that contradicts the other stuff!"?

Yes. Every day. My feelings are this - if the Church accepts the BSA as the activity arm of the AP, then they should not "reform" the program. The BSA doesn't try to reform the AP.

The Church doesn't "accept" BSA as the activity arm, it IS the activity arm. The Church doesn't reform the program, it's the uninformed members who try to reform it. The mistaken idea that that is a separate LDS Scouting organization out there somewhere, that the adults are only trying to find. They cannot accept that they are supposed to have BSA, not BSA-lite. Learn what the BSA is, what it's methods are and the aims do; then you can be successful.

If Wood badge is the MTC then they need a good senior companion to guide them after they hit the streets. Wood Badge isn't the end of training, but the beginning of a great adventure that includes University of Scouting, Philmont Conference Center and Commissioner Staff.
