Candle Opening

(Dim or turn off room lights except for an electric candle or flashlight)

"This is the season of lights and stars, when days are short and nights are long with beautiful stars.

Lord Baden Powell, the founder of Scouting, once said this to his scouts. '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 holds pierced in that blanket by those who have done good deeds in this world. the stars are not all the same size, some a big, some are little. So some men have done great deeds, and some men have done small deeds, but they have all made their hole in the blanket by doing good before they went to heaven.'

Let's remember when we look at the starry sky to make our own hole in the blanket, by doing good deeds and helping other people."
