Services or devotionals? Showing reverence for the Dude
« on: January 02, 2016, 06:58:15 PM »
question: what kinds of devotional services are practiced in the church of the later day dude?

my son is in cub scouts. there is a religion requirement.

http://www.boyscouttrail.com/webelos/webelos-duty-god-you-adventure.php

obviously dudeism isn't on the list of approved faiths. so we can't meet requirement option 1, earning the religious emblem of your faith. we'd like to satisfy the requirements listed under option 2.*

so, what kinds of services can my 9-year-old participate in? (and i'm being serious, so please no suggestions for him to mix caucasians) in what ways can he show his reverence for, in this case, the dude?

* from the link:

Complete at least three of requirements 2a-2d:
Help plan, support, or actively participate in a service of worship or reflection. Show reverence during the service.
Review with your family or den members what you have learned about your duty to God.
Discuss with your family, family's faith leader, or other trusted adult how planning and participating in a service of worship or reflection helps you live your duty to God.
List one thing that will bring you closer to doing your duty to God, and practice it for one month. Write down what you will do each day to remind you.

I'm presuming this is the little Weebelo's religion, not just yours. With that in mind, here are my suggestions.

Help plan, support, or actively participate in a service of worship or reflection. Show reverence during the service.

Bowling, watching TBL, and/or observing a prolonged moment of quiet reflection all have textual support for satisfying this criteria.

Review with your family or den members what you have learned about your duty to God.

Hold a discussion about what he views as "god" and the nature of his duty to the same.

Discuss with your family, family's faith leader, or other trusted adult how planning and participating in a service of worship or reflection helps you live your duty to God.

Cake: just synthesize (1) and (2), above.

List one thing that will bring you closer to doing your duty to God, and practice it for one month. Write down what you will do each day to remind you.

Ask him to extrapolate the foregoing activities into a project which is personally meaningful to him and keep a journal for a month. Actually, writing all this shit down would probably be in order. Good documentation he's not little Larrying it.

Personally I would allow my children to be a member of an organization that has "religious requirements".
Take a deep breath. Clear you mind. Now think of an organization for children in the middle east where children are required to conform to a certain religion.
Now how does it look?
I did not watch my Buddies die face down in the muck for this!

Schools and local communities will show you for sure that you are the different one. Different surname, religion, parent's job etc. You cannot escape this 'normality' test. The worst thing is to explain too much of it in a too serious way and be sorry for everything. Just try to make things as smooth as possible without giving up your ideas.
