Happy birthday, Peter Boehler (Dec. 31, 1712 – April 27, 1775)! #Moravian bishop. #Universalist. Sent to the Americas by Count Nikolaus von Zinzendorf to help establish Moravian communities in the New World. In 1740, Boehler led Moravian groups to Pennsylvania, where they founded the towns of Nazareth and Bethlehem. Boehler believed that God’s grace was so compelling that, eventually, everyone would be saved.
