Lord Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting, said this to Scouts everywhere: "I often think when the sun goes down, the world is hidden by a big blanket from the light of heaven, but the stars are little holes pierced in that blanket by those who have done good deeds in this world. The stars are not all the same size; some are big, some are little, and some men have done small deeds but they have made their hole in the blanket by doing good before they went to heaven.
A Scoutmaster has many opportunities to influence the life of scouts. They hike along the trail, take part in their activities, help them make plans, and engage in manifold relationships as their leader. The Scoutmaster is eager to help the youth grow.
Often the most receptive atmosphere of the day is at the close of the troop meeting or after a happy evening around the campfire when the Scoutmaster shares a minute.
May your influence in the lives of these young men and women be strengthened through the use of these Scoutmaster's Minutes.
