Interfaith Service Program
Call to Worship
We had no churches, no religious organization, no sabbath days, no holidays, and yet we worshiped. Sometimes the whole tribe would assemble and sing and pray:sometimes a smaller number, perhaps only two or three.The songs had a few words but were not formal.The singer would occasionally put in such words as he wished instead of the usual tone sound. Sometimes we prayed in silence; sometimes each prayed aloud;sometimes an aged person prayed for all of us.At other times one would rise and speak to us of our duties to each other… our services were short.
There is one God looking down on us all.We are all the children of one God.The sun, the darkness, the winds are all listening to what we have to say.
– Geronimo Chiricahua Apache
Leader: Our honor is a quality we possess because of our dignity as human beings and children of God. Our‘best’ means to give all we have. It means to keep striving to do what we know is right, and in the Oath, it means we will try to be good Scouts by fulfilling our Scout duties as expressed in the Scout Law.
All: ON MY HONOR I WILL DO MY BEST.
Leader: Our duty to God and country means chiefly two things: obedience and loyalty.The duties we owe the House of God, our country, parents, one another, and ourselves come from some command of God.The Scout Law sums up all the qualities a Scout should have and without which he cannot be a good Scout.
All:TO DO MY DUTY TO GOD AND MY COUNTRY AND TO OBEY THE SCOUT LAW.
Leader: God told us that the love of our neighbor was like the first law of the love of God. The first children of God were known by the love they had for one another. Real human charity or love prompts us to want to help others at all times. Our Scout training will give us skills and knowledge that will put us in a better position to do this.
All: TO HELP OTHER PEOPLE AT ALL TIMES.
Leader: Scouting offers us many opportunities to grow Strong physically.To be alert and ready requires us to give special care to those gifts of soul – intellect and will – that make us unto God. ‘Morally straight’ means we must try to know what is right and true, and to love what is good and choose it.
All:TO KEEP MYSELF PHYSICALLY STRONG, MENTALLY AWAKE,AND MORALLY STRAIGHT.
Personal Prayer and Reflection
Oh, Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the winds and whose breath gives life to all the world, hear me. I come before you, one of your many children. I am weak and small.
I need your strength and wisdom. Let me walk in beauty and make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset; my ears sharp so I may hear your voice. Make me wise,so I may learn the things you have taught my people, the lessons you have hidden under every rock and leaf. I seek strength, not to be superior to my brothers, but to be able to fight my greatest enemy–myself. Make me ever ready to come to you with clean hands and straight eyes,so whenever life fades, like the fading sunset, my spirit will come to you without shame.
– ChiefYellow Lark, a Blackfoot Indian
May the sun bring you new energy by day,
May the moon softly restore you by night,
May the rain wash away your worries,
May the breeze blow new strength into your being,
May you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life.
– Apache Blessing
