In "Resistance and Transformation," a Tapestry of Faith program
Invite the two volunteers to read aloud the correspondence in the story, "The UUA and the Boy Scouts of America." Then, invite participants to share their experiences and/or reflections related to this controversy.
While the UUA still offers both the program and the emblem through the bookstore, "Religion in Life" is not sanctioned by the Boy Scouts of America. Individuals and congregations have responded differently to the controversy. Some ignore the stance of the national organization and complete the program as part of their scouting experience, while trying to change the position of the national organization. Some refuse to take part in or host Boy Scout troops. Some have formed a separate organization called the Unitarian Universalist Scouters Organization.
