“Betweens” by Brooks Series

Phillips who?!?  Author, preacher, and the Rector of Boston’s Trinity Church, Copley Square, Phillips Brooks is probably best known today for having written the lyrics to “O Little Town of Bethlehem.” Brooks was an outspoken opponent of slavery, proponent of education, champion of reason, and Bishop of Massachusetts. A Victorian era / Gilded Age rock star, Brooks was a one of the most popular preachers of the 19th century and still has a following. He has been canonized by the Episcopal Church (his feast day is January 23rd — mark your calendars!). In the meantime, on June 9th, 16th, and 23rd, Pastor David will update some of the thoughts of the great Brahmin Prophet, Phillips Brooks.

Brooks picThe “Betweens” by Brooks will include:

  • Between Vision and Action
  • Between This Time and That
  • Between Your Choices and Mine

“There is one universal religion – the religion of Love. Love your God with your whole heart and soul, love every child of God as much as ever you can, and remember that the possibilities of good are greater than the possibilities of evil; and you have the key to Heaven.” 

— Phillips Brooks
