A Scout is Reverent


CUBS GIVE THANKS

A SCOUT IS REVERENT. HOW DOES “CUBS GIVE THANKS” RELATE TO THIS POINT OF THE SCOUT LAW?

During this time of the year, we give thanks for the bounty we have received. Giving thanks is an expression of our inner strength and confidence based on our trust in a higher power.032e27c1-6b5d-4f2b-8332-6e3205df4f0c
