Scouting Interfaith Hike
Scouts from the Spanish Trails District of the Crossroads of the West Council met on a Saturday morning in December for an Interfaith hike.
Scouts and Leaders assembled and visited 4 different churches and learned about different beliefs and had a spiritual message from each one as well.
One of the highlights was an address from Charles Dahlquist – former BSA National Commissioner and now President of the Vanguard International Scouting Association. He spoke from long experience on the importance of interfaith relationships and brotherhood especially from his time as the National Commissioner and during several World Jamborees.
All of the Scouts and Scouters who participated expressed their satisfaction with this event and appreciation for those who spoke and participated.
