Another Good Guy

Yesterday, I mentioned Lord Shaftsbury, today meet William Booth, the founder of the Salvation Army. Curously, Shaftsbury hated him and labelled him the Anti-Christ, because Booth came to believe that women could preach as well as men (his wife convinced him of that!). This statue is in whitechapel Road, close by the mission.

The Salvation Army is now worldwide and continues to provide support for those without homes or hope.

Excellent blog! I stumbled upon it from the Fodor's forum (the thread about Fish and Chips). I love all the photos and stories. Almost inspires me to do the same for Austin, TX, USA....but not quite :)

Oops, just scrolled down and found the Austin, TX link. I should have known someone would have had the idea well before me!
