Thinking Day 2009

February 22, 2009 is Thinking Day 'round the world for the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS).

In conjunction with Thinking Day, Siloam church held an interfaith service this evening. Guiding members from the 64th and the 65th London Guide Units took part in the "Seeking Spirit” service - part of which honoured the Baden Powells and the Guiding/Scouting legacy. This service was also a culmination of the Religion in Life activities that the church facilitated for Guiding members from the 2 Units.
Many thanks to Cindy, the Youth Minister at Siloam, for coordinating this evening and for all her work on the Religion in Life activities.

Thinking Day 2009

The World Thinking Day theme for 2009 is
girls worldwide say “stop the spread of AIDS, malaria and other diseases”

This theme is part of WAGGGS’ new Global Action Theme. At the 33rd WAGGGS World Conference in 2008, WAGGGS announced its new Global Action Theme:
girls worldwide say “together we can change our world”
which focuses on the Millennium Development Goals.

The theme encourages girls, young women and members of all ages to make a personal commitment to change the world around them.

Thinking Day greetings from the 64th London Guides to all our Guiding sisters worldwide.
