Excerpt from Brilliants From the Writings of the Right Reverend Phillips Brooks: Bishop of Massachusetts

Of the essential life of the Church, of the truly living Church, what can we say but this? that it is that which most completely feels that it was made for men, not men for it; which, therefore, lives only as it lives in them; which strives for nothing but to open more and more the channels of life from Christ to them? In such a church and such a church alone can be real unity. To be full of such a care for, and spirit of servantship to, the human soul, is the only power that can keep our own Church one in the midst of all her distractions. No outer bond of history or government can permanently hold her.
