  Peace Light
  We will once again have the Peace Light available hosted at the Scout cabin. If you bring an oil lamp or other shielded flame (candle in a lantern) you can share the Peace Light that originated in Bethlehem and is spread across the globe this Christmas season. Here is a bit more about it:


Each year, a child from Upper Austria fetches the light from the grotto in Bethlehem where Jesus was born. The light is carried in two blast proof miners lamps on an Austrian Airlines jet from Tel Aviv Israel to Vienna  Austria from where it is distributed at a Service of Dedication to delegations from across Europe who take it back, with a message of Peace, to their own countries. Austrian Airlines then flies the miners lamps containing the Peace Light from Bethlehem to New York City. The goal of this web site is help the light spread like the branches of a huge tree rooted in New York and spreading across the continent.
