The Spirit of Guiding

Jo Dunning
New Zealand



The four spirits is a campfire opening and goes like this:
You have four people representing the four spirits.

North:

I am the spirit of the North where the great game of Guiding began.

South

I am the spirit of the South and I spread the love of Guiding to the world.

East :

I am the spirit of the East and I spread the friendship of Guiding to the world.

West :

I am the spirit of the West and I spread the worth of Guiding to the world.

All :

Together we light the fire of friendship.


As each spirit says her line she comes forward with lighted candle (when inside) or a flaming torch (when outside). Once all the spirits are gathered with their flames they say the last line together and light the campfire. This is just one idea of how to use it.
