Template of maze
• Explain how the BB badge is made up, and the meaning of the Anchor. The crest of The Boys’ Brigade is an anchor on a red cross, the latter being introduced at the time of the union of the BB with The Boys’ Life Brigade in 1926. Written on the anchor are the words “Sure and Steadfast” taken from Hebrews 6:19 (AV) – “which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast”. Upto 1993 the Brigade spelt the word “stedfast” without the first “a”, this being the early spelling of the authorised version.
• Use template of BB badge to help explain this.
• Young People find their way through the maze, and colour the Anchor (using correct colours).
