The Pastor provided an inspirational devotional, setting the tone for the Pathfinders for the year. Ask a Pathfinder about oven mitts...
In addition to our traditional outdoor activities and community service focus, this year we are also looking at modern technology. Eddie led out in introducing the Computers and Mobile Devices honor, walking the Pathfinders through the ways computers work, exploring the inner components of computers and mobile devices (including a half-dissected desktop computer and a disassembled smart phone), and discussing the ways we interact with computers and technology in our daily life. We will continue to look into the benefits and challenges posed by the abundance of computers in our daily lives, consider ethical and safe computer and device use, and assess our ability to balance our time and usage effectively.
We concluded the meeting reviewing the Pathfinder Pledge and Law, and considering what these commitments actually mean in our lives. Over the next few weeks the Pathfinders will be illustrating aspects of the Pledge and Law as a way to share their understanding and inspire others.
We are looking forward to an active Pathfinder year, and thank you all for your support.
