BOSTON – #5 – Phillips Brooks…

Phillips Brooks was one of the great American preachers in olden days. It was quite a surprise to come upon this fine statue of Brooks, a classic Episcopalean of Boston, situated in a park right across the street from an historic Unitarian-Universalist Church in North Andover.

I figure the local Episcopalians decided they didn’t want to forfeit this lovely northern suburb to the UUs. Pretty good way to keep your foot in the door, I’d say. I loved both the statue and the church.
