I will be unavailable to ship “That of God” & “Spirit of Truth” awards and “Friends Emblem” recognitons from Wednesday, 19th of July through Wednesday, 9th of August 2017 – as I will be out of the Country visiting ’1652 Territory/The Lake District’ and YMG 2017.
Applications for youth awards received during that time period will be mailed out after the 10th of August.
Nominations for adult recognitions received during that time will not begin the review process until at least 10th of August.
The “Scouting for Peace” scroll was created at the Friends Committee on Scouting display in the ‘Faith & Beliefs’ area during the 2013 BSA National Jamboree.
The ‘Faith & Beliefs’ area theme at the Jamboree was “Peace” and the members of Friends Committee on Scouting turned to the Friends Peace Testimony for their display. A large scroll was made available for the Scouts (youth), Scouters (adult leaders) and other visitors to leave their messages of peace.
Before the scroll was taken to the Jamboree a Young Friends First Day Class in Maryland wrote “Scouting for Peace” in multiple places along the 168 foot scroll.
In 2016 a video of the scroll was created . . . so that it and it’s many messages could be shared more widely.
Enjoy! Feel free to leave us your comments about this project.
