Must have been a lot of fun

The weekend was perfect for camping, and all the Scouts had a great time at the Wapehani District Fall Camporee. One of the challenge events was called a "bucket brigade." Scouts had to run down to Mill Creek with buckets, then back up the bluff to fill a barrel with water. The trail quickly became slippery; some of the Scouts came to grief even before they got back to the trail. 'S all good.

I was talking with my young friend Seth about the distinctive art tradition of Ethiopia. Here are a couple of icons from the Ethiopian Coptic Church.
