Gracing the courtyard in front of the church’s bell tower,
three vertical pieces reach to encircle a gold leafed globe. Made
of core-tin steel, there are twelve projections on one of the vertical
pieces representing the twelve disciples. Nine projections on another
vertical piece represent the fruits of the Spirit. The structure
invites the viewer’s personal interpretation based on the
perspective of his or her own individual faith.

1893, the sculpture provides a complement to the spirit of the congregation,
both proud of its heritage and progressive in nature.
A gift to the WMSUMC congregation and to the community by Mr. and
Mrs. William R. Soles, Jr., the sculpture was dedicated Sunday,
