From:                    JT Dabbs, Southern Region P.R.A.Y. Board Representative

Subject:                P.R.A.Y. Biannual Report – Southern Region

 

P.R.A.Y. has posted its biannual report showing the number of Protestant religious emblems earned by each council for the first half of 2016. Congratulations to the 38 councils listed below in the Southern Region that have already exceeded what they did in 2015. This is especially noteworthy with the new emphasis on Duty to God and will certainly impact a Council’s overall youth retention. Please share this information with your Council Religious Relationships Chair and other key volunteers.

Regarding Duty to God, here are two resources to help your volunteers promote religious emblems:

·        Religious Emblems Presentation Script (A Presentation by Unit Leaders to Scouts and their Parents)

·        Take Home Handout on Religious Emblems (for parents)
