斯科特的兄弟会博客 #28: 遵循先知

斯科特瑞琪

几个月前,我打开从教会运载主题的邮件。“新倡议儿童及青少年发展。”我很快发现,教会将停止赞助上月所有侦察单位 31, 2019 因为有了新的全球青年方案.

该邮件包含一个链接 该教会网页 即推出新举措. A 从第一总统的声明 解释说,“新办法旨在帮助所有的女孩和男孩, 女青年和男青年发现他们永恒的身份, 人品打造和弹性, 发展生活技能, 并履行其神圣的角色,作为上帝的儿女“。

什么是惊心动魄的时刻是后期圣徒耶稣基督教会的成员, 当主借着他的仆人正在实施中的一切事物的持续恢复了一些改动! 当我们试图维持上帝的先知, 它关注所有的律师是很重要的.

在中 1831 不久后,主透露,杰克逊县, 密苏里州, 是为圣徒的聚集地, 他告诫教会成员不要匆忙有移动 (D&C 58:56, 64:23, 101:15). 他发布了关于克莱县类似的警告 1833 (D&C 101:68,72). 在多年的重迁移到盐湖城山谷, 教会领袖一再劝告圣徒在迁移之前做好充分的准备. 然而,在所有这些情况下, 有些教友造成自己和他人极大的困扰通过急切地痴痴太早.

我很高兴为教会的新青年计划. 但是让我们避免从侦察一方倾斜过度的渴望. 解释说,新的青年计划将在1月份开始后, 2020, 第一总统的劝告, “我们鼓励所有的年轻人, 家庭, 和领导人继续侦察的积极参与和资金支持,直到该日期“。

这就意味着童军仍是教会孩子们青睐的官方活动计划 8-13. 我们预言授权在未来充分,积极开展侦察程序 16 个月.

的作者 这堂新闻文章 注意 19 几个月足够的时间重要的事情要发生, 包括哥伦布航行到新大陆的8倍和一个妹妹传教士整个任务. 他们写, “历史已经证明了很多可能发生在 19 个月 - 和教会领袖希望的时候领先了历史悠久的青年倡议会, 很好, 非常值得的。”

作为后期圣徒童军领袖, 你会怎么做,以确保你跟随在这个问题上的先知的领导? 您将如何确保在未来 17 几个月的侦察计划是为你服务的男孩“以及花费的时间”?

这有利于您的童子军一种方法是,以确保他们有机会加盟 箭头的顺序, 侦察 ’ s 国家荣誉学会. 正如我在解释 博客 #27, 在OA提供年轻人一种文化,“enthrones有益于他人作为一个有意义的生活中不可或缺的功能,努力工作。”它促进了休闲弹性. 什么童子军团长不希望这对他的童子军?

我想,你们中许多服务将永远不会再是美国的童子军成员的青年男子结束后 2019. 但有些人可能在继续他们与BSA的关系中得到满足. 谦卑Scoutmasters会认识到,他们可能无法告诉那些将其中男生.

在OA将继续教堂和BSA分道扬镳后,它的使命,因此可以很好地帮助后期圣徒男孩谁将会继续寻找在完成侦察. 但是,只有当你采取行动,使OA选举你的队伍. 您可以通过箭头章的当地童子军服务中心或订购接触做到这一点.

现在做. 时间短为你所服务的年轻人.

 

要思考的问题

  • 怎么舍得你跟随先知?
  • 你会做什么,以确保您所服务的男孩将有一个高品质的侦察计划在未来 17 个月?
  • 您将使您的童子军成为侦察的国家荣誉社会成员之前,它是为时已晚,他们?

    优秀的文章, 斯科特 ·. Great way to convey the messaging of staying on course until the prophet tells us to begin our new journey in the children and youth program. 做得好!

  2. Ken Rawlins 说:

    Ditto! 说得好. My family is a three generation Eagle Scout family. All of my son’s are Eagle Scout’s, and members of the Order of the Arrow. My oldest son is a Vigil Honor member along with my wife and myself. We have been and will always be an LDS Scouting family. Character development and EDGE are the hallmark of Scouting.

    好文章! 现货上!

  4. 罗纳德·墨菲 说:

    斯科特 ·,
    One point that you should have made.
    While the Church will no longer sponsor any Scouting units, the Church does and will not discourage our youth from participating in Scouting. It will just be a voluntary activity as of 2020.
    Sadly there are wards and stakes who have already dropped Scouting, contrary to the direction of Salt Lake.
    For those who see the value of Scouting, we should inform scouts and their parents that Scouting WILL NOT END after 2019. The Church is NOT directing our youth not to participate!
    I have to disagree with Brother McIntire tostay the course until the Prophet tells us to begin our new journey in the children and youth program”. This gives the false impression that all LDS Youth should no longer be in Scouting. The Prophet DID NOT say that.
    For many LDS Scouts and Scouters, we can not walk away from Scouting like that.

  5. Mac 麦金太尔 说:

    Ronald,

    You are right. Thank you for making this point. I did not mean to imply that people should drop Scouting after December 2019. I meant they should continue to do as the Lord has directed through His prophets rather than choosing another course. Far too many members of the Church have abandoned Scouting already. I would love to see boys/girls and young men/women continue with Scouting after December 2019 because it is an outstanding character development program.

  6. Kenneth Rawlins 说:

    同意!

  7. George Weight 说:

    Too many membersdroppedscouting long before the announcement was made. Much of this was due to a misunderstanding of what Scouting is and does. My plea would be for members to educate themselves on the values that Scouting and the Church hold and will continue to hold in commonand to avoid labeling those of us who still want to be involved with pejorative labels. We’re not apostatizing in any sense of the word!

  8. Ronald,

    Thank you for pointing this out. 哥哥杰弗里 · R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles has made it clear that the Church is NOT discontinuing its support of Scouting; the Church is merely discontinuing its sponsorship of Scouting units at the end of 2019 due to international growth.

    埃尔德·霍兰 最近说 那 “when our charters are finished, we hope that many LDS youth who wish to do so will still choose to be in Scouting.Reflecting on his own Eagle Scout award and those of his sons, Elder Holland expressed the wish that his grandsons will also become Eagle Scouts.

    查尔斯 W. Dahlquist recently explained in this video how LDS young men can continue their involvement in Scouting after 2019. He promised more information to come on this.

    After the end of 2019 the Order of the Arrow will continue to offer a program that trains Scouts, including Latter-day Saint youth, to lead out in unselfish service to others.
