Changes within the Ward
My Young Men's President and Venturing Adviser was called into the Bishopric on Sunday. I am excited for him. Having another member of the Bishopric that understands the program and advocates for the program is never a bad thing. He finished his Wood Badge training less than a year ago (earned his beads) and is the first member of our Bishopric that is WB trained.
On the negative side (I am a half empty type of guy), we must train a new President. The Scoutmaster and I were wringing our hands and doing an evil laugh on Sunday because we can train a new YMP the way we want (not that the old guy was bad!). BSA ALL THE WAY! I have been asked how I feel about changing callings within the program. I am happy where I am at. When my call was extended, I was told it was a 10 year calling. I expect it to be that at least! I never want to serve anywhere else again. I love the Scouting program and I love the young Priesthood holders (though at times they drive me nuts).
