The 40-Day Shepherd Challenge centers around a spiritual formation workbook based on the Aims and Methods of Scouting created by SMS Ty LaValley.
All participants who complete the 40 Day Shepherd Challenge may mail in the form in the back of the workbook to receive a fully embroidered three-colored patch. The patch is free, and the workbook is free.
“The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make moral and ethical choices over the course of a lifetime by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.” The mission of the Church is to make disciples for Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
The area where these two missions intersect is the subject of the LaValley’s spiritual formation workbook.
“Inside these covers is a buffet of spiritual formation practices for you to try. If it works then keep the practice. If one practice doesn’t work for you, then try some others. The ultimate goal is to introduce you to practices that put you in a posture to hear from God.” — Ty LaValley
