Once again the Peace Light will be coming to Cornwall. Peter Keast of the Scout movement will be delivering it to Truro Cathedral on Wednesday 17December.
A short fairly informal service will be held in the Cathedral at 11:30a.m to welcome the light of peace to Cornwall.
All organisations, denominations and individuals are welcome to attend. If you wish to ‘receive a light’ from the Peace Light do bring a suitable ‘safe’ container to transport your flame.
The flame is a direct descendent of the lighted candle which burns in the Grotto of the Nativity in Bethlehem.
The Peace Light is distributed around the world by the Scout and Guide movement. More than a thousand Scouts and Guides from at least 17 countries will be in the Gustav Adolf Church in Vienna for the commencement of the distribution.
Airlines, ferry companies and many individuals contribute their time to ensure that the Peace Light is able to send forth its message before Christmas.
Christmas is a time of symbols and traditions, how special at this time to have a flame burning that has been lit from a flame in Bethlehem and brought to Cornwall. Not for commercial gain, but to represent a hope that we all share and that is one of Peace.
