Duty to God Requirements in Upper Ranks

Posted on Nov 19 2019 - 9:46am

The Star, Life, and Eagle ranks each have a requirement, something to the effect of, "Tell how you have done your duty to God and how you have lived the Scout Oath and Scout Law in your everyday life."  In fact every rank back to Tiger Cubs has something like that.  Historically I have not done enough of a job treating this requirement.  It's intentionally vague enough that it isn't specific to any religious group, and so writing down a set of detailed requirements for it is difficult.
