The penny drops, the light comes on, eureka!, discovery, enlightenment, revelation.
If we watch carefully Scout leaders sometimes get to witness a marvelous happening; when some part of the world opens up for one of our Scouts. Have you seen this happen?
Sometimes it is the sudden realization that they can do something they didn’t think they could. Aha! I got it!
Maybe it’s meeting a challenge that they were unsure about but conquered anyway.
How about the palpable sense of satisfaction a Scout evidences when they’ve achieved a long sought goal?
Have you seen what happens when that band of struggling youth leaders finally get the idea that they are actually in charge and really make things happen?
I’ve had the privilege of witnessing some amazing transformations; almost like a light going on in a dark room.
What’s your favorite story of one of these ‘aha moments?’.
