May I guess? 'Scout's Own' discussion?


From Rumi:

Let the beauty we love be what we do.


From the Navahoe:

Before me peaceful, behind me peaceful, under me peaceful, around me peaceful.


Robbie Burns: (with appropriate accent, if possible)

Sum ha' meat, and canna eat, sum ca' eat but ha' nun.

But WE ca' eat and we ha' meat, and so the Laird be thank-ed.

To the Old Hundredth...


Be present at our table, Lord

Be here and everywhere adored

These mercies pass and grant that we

May feast in Paradise with thee. Amen.


If within the Christian community, Luther's table prayer is short, sweet and to the point


Come Lord Jesus, be our guest

And let these gifts to us be blessed. Amen

all our patrols will either have the PL/APL or the cook say a quick thanks prayer or they will say "X please lead us in grace"


most are like...

"thank you for the great weather, the time with our friends, and this wonderful food - amen"

I too have noticed that weather is the principal concern in scout theology. Every grace seems to thank God for the good weather or prays for better weather. I sometimes imagine that God knows when scouts are camping because his in-box fills up with weather requests.



I love the Robbie Burns grace.

Our family didn't like the traditional bedtime limerick...




Now I lay me down to sleep

I pray the Lord my soul to keep

Guide me safely through the night

And wake me with Your morning light. Amen
