Buford Chapter Motto:

"You are the light of the world."

Buford Chapter Theme:

     "Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill can not be hid. Neither do men light a candle,
and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light
shine so before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."
Matthew 5:14-16 (KJV)
