Glen Challenge: L.I.G.H.T.

À la The Crystal Maze, Glen 21 delegates are invited to use their wit and sheer will to navigate a series of challenges this week as part of the Glen Challenge. Working together in house groups, teams access daily clues to complete the construction of a L.A.N.T.E.R.N.

Click the lock below to start your induction journey into L.I.G.H.T. and receive today’s information. Don’t forget the code, which is in the induction pack. Good luck!

Hey, what do I do with this fabric, needle and thread?

Emily, Glen Leader

If you’re a delegate, you received a cross stitch kit (along with a lot of other cool stuff through the post) from Glen HQ this year. Here’s the gridded pattern (called a chart) to go with it.


Wondering how to get started or what to do with your completed project? Emily’s compiled a list (with some YouTube vids and links) to help.

Tutorials: Getting Started • Starting and Finishing • Backstitching

After you’ve finished:
• Add a border or other decoration
• Turn it into an iron-on patch
• Frame it in an embroidery hoop or clip frame
• Turn it into a card 

Photography Challenge: Still Life

Hedge, Glen Leader

A still life is a collection of items, typically against a plain background. Fruit is a traditional example, but you could use books, flowers, or objects of a single colour. Try hanging a sheet, or using a plain coloured wall or table to give yourself a good background, and then experiment with different lighting. Direct overhead lighting will look very different to sunshine lighting the scene at an angle. You could try using a lamp to control the lighting and see how the shadows change. Which objects are highlighted, and which are hidden? The examples above show how different backgrounds and lighting can affect the same subject, in this case lemons.

Want to share your pics? Send them to with the subject line ‘Photography Challenge’.

Journal Prompt: Still Life

Hedge, Glen Leader

Write a poem or 100 word story about this picture. You could describe it, using lots of expressive words, or imagine that the photographer asked you to set up the scene and write about how you felt about it.


Write an acrostic poem, where the first letters of each line spell out the word lemon.

Whatever you write in your journal is for you. No one else has to see it. But if you wanted to share it with fellow journal keeper and Glen leader Hedge, you can email it to using the subject line ‘Journal’.

Night Prayer: Examen

What is the Examen?

Helen, Glen Leader

Let’s just get this out of the way: the Examen isn’t an exam. (‘Whew!‘ you say.) It is, rather, a kind of prayer. The guy who came up with it said it was, in his opinion, the most important kind of prayer there is. In this short video, Helen and others explain more. Watch it before you listen to the podcast that accompanies it, the Examen Prayer, which you may wish to use after each day’s activities.
