PRAYERS AND POEMS FOR SCOUTERS
Scouting Roundtable Planning Guide
Oh God of Land and Sea, help us to
realize that the purest gold in the world is a heart dedicated totally to
you and that the richest person in the world is the one who shows compassion
for his fellow human beings. As we take this voyage over the new seas, help
us to grow more aware of the needs of those around us. Amen.
Our Best Selves
Circle Ten Council
The good you find in others is in you too.
The faults you find in others are your faults as well.
After all, to recognize something you must know it.
The possibilities you see in others are possible for
you as well.
The beauty you see around you is your beauty.
The world around you is a reflection, a mirror showing
you the person you are.
To change your world, you must change yourself.
To blame and complain will only make matters worse.
Whatever you care about is your responsibility.
What you see in others shows you yourself.
See the best in others, and you will be your best.
Give to others, and you give to yourself.
Appreciate beauty, and you will be beautiful.
Admire creativity, and you will be creative.
Love, and you will be loved.
Seek to understand, and you will be understood.
Listen, and your voice will be heard.
Teach, and you will learn.
Show your best face to the mirror, and you'll be happy
with the face looking back at you.
are like a parachute; they only function when they are open.
