PEACE LIGHT OF BETHLEHEM
The Scouts of Pack 8 and Troop 8 have made the Peace Light of Bethlehem available to the Greater Peterborough community each December since 2004. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the flame was not distributed this year. However, through a network of Keepers of the Light, the flame is still available to our community. Although the BSA has placed a temporary pause on in-person Scouting activities, local adult members of the Monadnock Scouters Association will have the Peace Light on display at the entrance to Putnam Park on Saturday, December 19, 2020, from 4:00pm to 5:30pm. You are welcome to light your own lantern or enclosed candle or just spend some time in reflection with the Peace Light flame. Masks are required. For more information on the Peace Light, see: https://peacelightnorthamerica.org/
REMINDER – CHRISTMAS EVE CANDLES
Don’t forget to pick up some candles for our Christmas Eve service. They are available in the fellowship hall, or if you need some delivered just let the office know.
