The Peace Light is a continuous flame at the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. Each year at the beginning of Advent, a scout from upper Austria accepts the light from the grotto where Jesus was born. The flame, along with its message of peace, is spread by scouts across Europe, North America and beyond.
Scouts, Scouters, family members and guests bring an enclosed lantern or candle and a means to safely transport it. Receive the message of Peace Light to share with your unit members, sponsor organization, family and friends.
