Light from Bethlehem (2)
Each year, a child from Austria fetches the light from the grotto in Bethlehem where Jesus was born. The light is carried in two blast proof miners lamps on an Austrian Airlines jet from Tel Aviv Israel to Vienna Austria from where it is distributed at a Service of Dedication to delegations from across Europe who take it back, with a message of Peace, to their own countries. The German scout organization VCP takes part every year and brings the peace light to Germany. My tribe takes part in this. Here you see us after a service in one of the main churches in Essen. After that we bring the light to the people in Essen.
