A reader asks if a Boy Scout may wear the religious emblem knot if he earned a religious emblem as a Cub Scout. Yes, he may.
Trust Award Requirement 1 - Tending your Faith
Earn the Religious and Community Life Bronze Award.
Receive the religious emblem appropriate to your age and religious affiliation. This requirement is option No. 1 among the requirements for the Religious and Community Life Bronze Award. If completed for that award, it counts here, too. If your religion does not offer a religious emblem program such as those in the Duty to God brochure, No. 05-879D, then you may complete a similar program of religious discovery suitable to both your Advisor and your religious leader.
Visit with your religious leader and discuss your beliefs and why you accept those beliefs. Compare your personal beliefs with those formally accepted by your religion. Following this discussion, write an essay explaining your beliefs and review it with your religious leader and your crew Advisor. Make a 15- to 20-minute presentation (discussion, video, slideshow, etc.) to your crew or another youth group explaining your beliefs.
Explain the Venturing Oath and the Venturing Code in your own words. Explain how they have an effect on your daily life, your life goals, and how you live your life as a part of your community.
The TRUST award is the religious and community life award for Venturers. A young man or woman can earn this award by learning more about faith and service.
Comparing the 10 Commandments to the Boy Scout Law is an interesting activity for any Boy Scout group.
Faith is an important part of Scouting programs and religious emblems programs for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturers reinforce what is stressed in the 12th point of the Scout Law
