Cookevillian Involved In Boy Scout Bible Project

Bobby Ross Jr., who writes a blog for the Christian Chronicle says Cookeville resident Steve Leddy is leading an effort to supply bibles to thousands of Boy Scouts who will be attending the organization's National Jamboree. As Boy Scouts of America celebrates its 100th anniversary, Members of Churches of Christ for Scouting plans what executive director Kent Barnett describes as a “dominant presence” at the jamboree, expected to draw 50,000 Scouts, leaders and staff. Leddy says the organization intends to distribute 10,000 Bibles to Scouts, mainly during worship services on Sunday, Aug. 1. Five Church of Christ worship services will be conducted simultaneously at strategic locations where the scouts, leaders and staff are camping.
