Anyone who has ever hiked a mountain, or coastal trail has likely come upon formal or informal markers or designations such as those carefully-arranged rock stacks (cairns–to use the Scottish word) that help to guide us. Some of these markers can actually help us avoid danger if not death! Over the history of God’s people, He has provided our ancestors with the cairns necessary to reach the promised land. He even provided the pathways that the Ark of the Covenant would travel to be protected from the enemy. In this Sermonette we will explore the biblical context of this very real–life tool or construct, and its meaning in our spiritual life.
