International Peace Light Arrives at 89th Reading

“We
gladly receive the light as a sign of our willingness to be channels of peace,
by our words and actions”

The International
Peace Light is passed throughout the world by Scouts having been  lit from the Grotto of the Church of the
Nativity in Bethlehem.

For over 25
years the light was distributed throughout Berkshire and well beyond by Margaret
Ellison, RIP, who was a faithful ambassador for this precious flame and its
message.  This year the flame was
collected by Rev. Pam Gordon and distributed from the 89th Reading
Scout HQ to local churches and Scout Groups in the Reading and Henley areas.

The 89th
Reading will parade the light into a darkened St Barnabas Church, Emmer Green,
at the start of their Scouts Carol Service on Tuesday 19th December.

Group or local Church would like to receive the International Peace Light next
year please register now:
