More serendipity

I've blogged before about how fausto and alt-fausto are two UUs from neighboring parishes who work together at a big Boston company in a landmark building that is surrounded by the trappings and history of UUism.

So perhaps it shouldn't have been a surprise this morning, but it was anyway, when a couple of workmen unexpectedly stopped in the hall outside our offices and dropped off a huge original watercolor streetscape featuring the Arlington Street Church, the sometime pulpit of William Ellery Channing and Ezra Stiles Gannett, which in real life happens to stand about two blocks away from us.

By the end of the day the painting was up on our wall, along with various other pieces of artwork hung on walls outside other offices.

Our admin assistant told us having that church image looming over us ought to keep us on the straight and narrow.

"Oh, no it won't," we replied, in unison.
