NORTH BALTIMORE - Earning the rank of Eagle Scout is not easy. The goal is for the Scout's project to challenge him and to benefit the community.
For Cody Switzer, who received his Eagle Scout badge on Oct. 6, his prayer labyrinth easily filled both of those requirements.
Rev. Susan Kronbach, pastor of Church of the Good Shepherd United Methodist Church in North Baltimore, said, "We are so pleased to be the beneficiaries of Cody Switzer's Eagle Scout project."
In addition to his badge ceremony, the labyrinth was also blessed that day.
Kronbach noted the prayer labyrinth and rock garden "provides such a peaceful, reflective space for us, and for the whole community."
Though the actual work of installing the labyrinth was completed in roughly a week, Switzer's efforts went far beyond as he designed and planned the garden, raised the money and recruited additional volunteers to do the work.
