Mac ’ s 消息 #11: 帮助你年轻的人感觉到和承认精神

Mac 麦金太尔

我从未在我多年在侦查中发现一些年轻男性最强大的灵性体验来不在祭司的职任仲裁教室里, 但一会儿站在远处的山顶上, 徒步在茂密的森林中一条窄径, 静静地坐在水晶般清澈的湖边, 或同时收集作为围着温暖的篝火的侦察部队在深夜.

正如我提到上星期, 作为一个男青年领导者你却有无数的机会,从精神上影响一个孩子的命. 如果您有您的仲裁或来自单亲家庭或家庭无虔诚的祭司的角色模型的侦察单位的年轻人, 你可能在那年轻男人生命中唯一的祭司影响. 因此, 你的核心目标之一应该是你的朋友们提供众多的"HOFRS"的经验在哪里你"帮助别人的感觉和认识精神。" **

一名年轻男子一旦你的祭司的职任仲裁或不应该有一个单一男孩在能老实说你领导下的侦察部队的成员抱怨他从未圣灵在他的生活. 当出妥善的计划, 每个童军活动可以是一种精神体验. 花时间来促进个人反思后的事件, 一次徒步旅行, 钓鱼之旅, 一天的野营, 或一个优点徽章会话将会帮助孩子们认识到他们在侦查中所做的一切的精神连接.

我希望你会看到每个下列情况下作为结构化的时间,当你可以触碰一个男孩精神的见证, 分享你个人的灵性体验, 信仰促进故事, 或者讨论道德原则:

  • 童军领袖会议
  • 童军的分钟
  • 隐藏场景, 一对一的指导
  • 每一项活动后的思考
  • 营火的故事
  • 法院的荣誉
  • 改变生活的或困难的活动中
  • 安全所需的活动
  • 技能和领导能力培训
  • 一个男孩回答

 

童军运动的目的是"年轻人们做出伦理和道德的选择在他们的有生之年做准备."你可以实现这一目的, 和上帝的目的, 更充分时您不会错过一个机会去帮助别人的感觉和认识到精神.

 

花一点时间来反映

  • 你与你的朋友们举行童军领袖会议吗?
  • 你提供有意义的童军分钟在哪里你加强童军价值观吗?
  • 你在你的野营创建灵性的经验, 徒步旅行, 篝火, 优点徽章类, 和其他童军活动? 你提供安静吗, 反光时刻在他们侦察的经验,所以他们可以这样做?
  • 男孩子们能感觉到和承认他们与你互动的精神吗?

 

打开你的倒影变成行动

  • 你会开始做什么, 停止做, 或做得更好,因为你的倒影?

    谢谢 Mac. The idea you present are wonderful but I am overwhelmed. How do I do all theses things when I am planning the program , conducting the meetings and organizing these young men’s groups? Am I doing something wrong?

    1. Mac 麦金太尔 说:

      兰迪,

      Thank you for your heartfelt and honest question. As I have been writing these blog messages I’ve wondered myself if I am overwhelming people with my suggestions. We are only eleven weeks into this and perhaps I am giving too much advice for people to think about. I certainly don’t want people to feel that Scouting is a unattainable, daunting task because of my blog messages and pondering questions. Hopefully everyone realizes these are just some helpful hints that they can either try or ignore. And hopefully they realize they don’t have to do everything I suggest because I will be discussing a lot of different topics.

      I’m sure one of the major reasons why many young men leaders don’t implement the Scouting program as designed is because there are so many components to it. It is easy to get overwhelmed just trying to learn it all, let alone do it all. So I would suggest you just start with the basicsa few thingsand build from there. Use the boys to plan three months of activities. Chose your senior patrol leader (SPL) and help him fulfill his role. Find some merit badge counselors who can take the load off of you so you can focus on the boys. Ask the bishop to call assistant Scouting leaders if you don’t have them. 资源, 资源, resources is my answer as a Scoutmaster. Find other people to teach, 指示, 火车, 等. so you can focus on building relationships with the boys. I always reserve the Spirit of the unit/quorum and discipline to me. Everything else I delegate to someone else.

      These are just a few thoughts. I hope others will reply to your question and give you much better advice than me. Come on everyone. Give Randy, and others like him who have the same concerns, the benefit of your wisdom and years of experience.

    兰迪 – I am a big fan of a 2 year Deacons/Troop Plan. I call it 2 years of Tradition. Once you have a framework or foundation to build on, then taking it to the next level is easier to do. If you are reinventing the wheel and starting fresh or find yourself really struggling, know that there is a better way. I always say that if you are not having fun in Scouting, 你做错了.

    Planning the Program: Use your SPL/Deacon’s Quorum President to help with that. Teach him to lead. Weekly Presidency Meetings/PLC (Patrol Leader Councils) help with this.

    Conducting the Meeting: (see previousUse SPL)

    Organizing these group? Which Organizing are you referring to?

    Having a system (framework/foundation) 或 2 Year Plan that has youth input for improvement will help. Wood Badge is a great place to see the model. You never see the Scoutmaster take charge, since a good Senior Patrol Leader (SPL), can learn and lead. This allows the Scoutmaster to observe and take mental notes as well as focus on the Spirit. Creating opportunities for Spiritual Experiences, enhances the program and times in the REAL Purpose of why we do Scoutingwhich is to draw the boys closer to our Savior and become converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ and live by his teachings.
