Peace Light

by Dave Ishikawa

On Tuesday, December 13, 2011, the Peace Light came to Sacramento. Scout leaders gathered at the Golden Empire Council Service Center to greet the special flame that traveled from the Grotto of Bethlehem where Jesus Christ was born. Scout Leaders from the Middle East, Europe, Canada, and all over the United States passed the flame from place to place. We had the pleasure of coordinating the visit by the flame with a special ceremony and lighting of candles and lanterns for Scouts and Scouters to share with friends and family. It was an honor to be part of this ceremony and to host the Peace Light in our council and homes. Details about the Peace Light journey are available on the Peace Light website. Thanks to everyone who participated in the ceremony
