This was posted through the United Methodist List. Can anyone offer some
advice or help for this gentleman. I will compile your responses and
forward them back to him. Or you can reply to him directly instead of
through the list at the following: ehammitt@IX.NETCOM.COM
Here is a question made to me.
Any OA members want to make comment and help me with some feed back.
" I am not Methodist, but there is a Scout in my troop who is and came back
from his OA Ordeal saying that he felt the OA was teaching things against
his religion. Can you answer this statement/question, or forward this
question to the list to address this question? Think back on what is
involved in the pre-ordeal and ordeal ceremonies"
Yours in Christ and Scouting,
