Park Street Church in Boston

posted by Mark D. Roberts

Last weekend I had the privilege of preaching at Park Street Church in downtown Boston. Park St. is celebrating its bicentennial this year. That’s right, 200 years! They’ve had a bunch of guest preachers, including me.
I thought I’d share some pictures of this amazing church (by which I mean the people, not just the building). If you’re not familiar with Park St., check out their website. Better yet, if you’re in the Boston area, be sure to check out the church.
First, the church building at sunset. As you can see, it’s right in the heart of the city of Boston.

Second photo: The church at night from my hotel room.

Third and final photo: My favorite sign inside Park St. Church. You don’t see this sort of thing very often where I come from.

    Thank you, Mark, for coming and sharing in the SundayNight services about vocation. I came with two Bolivian sisters who are living out God’s call for professional excellence (one in vet science, the other engineering) through a close personal walk with Jesus and hard work (they are both au pairs presently) to help pay for further studies. Your reminder from Paul to do whatever we do to the glory of God was an encouragement to them and me.
    Gratefully,
    Stuart DeLorme, Minister to Internationals,
    Park Street Church

    How awesome to have a 200 year history as a congregation! Here’s praying for 200+ more.
    I didn’t see a parking lot…maybe I could just beam in online for a virtual service? And then they wouldn’t need the snow shovels.

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? Conclusions
In this series on the death of Jesus, I have presented four different perspectives on why Jesus had to die: Roman, Jewish, Jesus’, and Early Christian. I believe that each of these points of view has merit, and that we cannot fully understand the necessity of Jesus’ death without taking them all

Sunday Inspiration from the High Calling
Can We Find God in the City? Psalm 48:1-14 Go, inspect the city of Jerusalem. Walk around and count the many towers. Take note of the fortified walls, and tour all the citadels, that you may describe them to future generations. For that is what God is like. He is our God forever and ever,

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? The Perspective of the First Christians, Part 3
An Act and Symbol of Love Perhaps one of the most startling of the early Christian interpretations of the cross was that it was all about love. It’s easy in our day, when crosses are religious symbols, attractive ornaments, and trendy jewelry to associate the cross with love. But, in the first

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? The Perspective of the First Christians, Part 2
The Means of Reconciliation In my last post, I examined one of the very earliest Christian statements of the purpose of Jesus’ death. According to the tradition encapsulated in 1 Corinthians 15, Jesus died “for our sins in accordance with the scriptures” (15:3). Yet this text doesn’t expl
