Few people are aware that flags that have become tattered or otherwise unsuitable for display should be burned in a ceremonious fashion.  This and other interesting information about the handling of the American and Christian flags was shared as part of the LOGOS ministry of Westview Christian Church in Indianapolis. 

Representatives of Boy Scout Troop 505, which meets at Westview, attended the regular Wednesday night meeting of Westview’s LOGOS Program on October 23 to instruct the children and youth in the proper respect and handling of both the American and Christian Flags.  The demonstrations by Anthony Gray, Mark Gray, and Ron Turner were held in the outdoor Vespers area at the church. 

A wiener roast was enjoyed by all as a part of the evening.
