“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”
1 Corinthians 13:4-8a (NIV)
February is normally known as the month of love. For some that may mean romantically, while for others it may mean loving those that are close to you. Whatever that is for you today, remember that true unconditional love comes from the Father who calls us His, His Son Jesus Christ for sacrificing Himself for us, and the Holy Spirit which guides us to love others as He has loved us.
Challenge: How will you display love to others this month?
By now, many of you have heard and hopefully checked out the awesome new resources for troops! If you have not, check them out below:
Troops High Award Spreadsheet (Leader)
The attached chart serves as a fill-able chart for the Troop leader. It is currently mapped out to fit all of the resources but can be adjusted according to what works best for your corps!
Sunbeams Devotional Book
Although Sunbeams learn a ton of character building lessons through troops, let us take it a step further and encourage them to begin a regular devotional life with this new resource! With this, we can bridge the gap between outreach & discipleship!
Updated Emblem Compatibility Chart
The attached document helps you map out troop programs that have multiple troops in one class. Here you will find the emblems grouped up by content.
Girl Guards High Award Chart
The attached charts serve as a journey for Sunbeams & Girl Guards to work on completing emblems to achieve High Awards. As the they complete the emblem, they can add the date and be enthusiastic to complete and achieve more!
Due to the new resources, you will start to notice that the emblems are not in sync with the season, but more leaning towards the goal in completing the emblems necessary to obtain that specific award. Keep in mind that this is only a resource– you can always change the badge you’d like to do at your discretion.
