Gathered here from over there,
And placed together with loving care,
Stone upon stone, layer upon layer,
A rocky pile, a pyramid fair.
A marker on the beacon height,
A symbol of an ancient rite,
A place of promise in dawn's light,
A guide to keep within your sight.

This poem is included in this section because of the message which goes with it. This message is given below.
The cairn is made of many stones, some large and some small, but all are necessary to its construction.
The stones represent the individual gifts given to the members of the church,
to be of any use these gifts must be brought to the body of the church to help build up the body;
gifts left at home or ignored are useless. The size or perceived importance of the gift is not the issue as long as it is brought and used.
