Duty to God Footsteps

Duty to God is part of the Scout Oath, and being reverent is the 12th point of the Scout Law.  In Scouting, you are encouraged to learn more about your own faith and to respect the faith of others.  In this adventure, you will complete most of these requirements with your family and/or your religious leaders.  Faith means having complete trust or confidence in someone or something.  Always be respectful when talking about your faith and when learning about other faiths.

Complete Requirement 1 or 2 plus at least two others:

  1. Discuss with your parent, guardian, den leader, or other caring adult what it means to do your duty to God. Tell how you do your duty to God in your daily life.
  2. Earn the religious emblem of your faith that is appropriate for your age, if you have not already done so.
  3. Offer a prayer, meditation, or reflection with your family, den, or pack.
  4. Read a story about people or groups of people who came to America to enjoy religious freedom.
  5. Learn and sing a song that could be sung in reverence before or after meals or one that gives encouragement, reminds you how to show reverence, or demonstrates your duty to God.
  6. Visit a religious monument or site where people might show reverence. Create a visual display of your visit with your den or your family, and show how it made you feel reverent or helped you better understand your duty to God.
