Roundtable Leader’s Guide
god, we thank you for the vision of the people who have come before us to make
the world a better place. Help us to remember as we work with our Cub Scouts
that only you know what the future holds for them and what their place in
history will be. Help us allow them to follow their dreams and to persevere
so that they too can soar to new heights. Amen

Clara County Council
This could be used during
opening or closing by having the Cub Scouts and their families form a large
circle. Then having the Cubmaster explain that he will be saying a prayer,
which was broadcast to earth by U.S. Astronaut Frank Borman, while on a
moon-orbiting mission in December, 1968.
us, O God, the vision which can see the love in the world, in spite of our
failure. Give us the faith to trust Thy goodness in spite of our ignorance and
weakness. Give us the knowledge that we may continue to pray with
understanding hearts, and show us what each one of us can do to set forward
the spirit of universal peace.”
From my friend
from the Philmont Pow Wow Seminar, Keri of Indian Waters Council in South

I was drug to church on Sunday
I was drug to church for weddings
I was drug to family reunions no

I was drug to the woodshed when I
disobeyed my parents.

and they affect my behavior in everything I do, say, and think.
They are stronger than cocaine,
crack, or heroin, and if today's children had this kind of drug problem,
America would certainly be a better place.
