December Lights Opening
Chief Seattle Council
This is the season of
lights. It is a time when the days are shorter and the nights are long. But,
somehow, things seem brighter. Shopping centers are bright with holiday
Thousands of homes have single
candles to light the way for the Christ Child. Other thousands have candles
burning to commemorate the miracle of the oils of Hanukkah. Even the stars in
the winter sky seem brighter.
The most brilliant glow
comes form the spirit of goodwill that you live all year ‘round in the Cub
Scout Promise and Law of the Pack.

And the angel said, “Peace on
earth, goodwill toward men.” Cub Scouts give goodwill by being thoughtful and
kind, and by doing Good Turns. In this holiday season, may our good will
shine as brightly as the star in the East, so that other people will follow
our example. Please join me in the Pledge of Allegiance.
