Quaccheri cristiani ecumenici per fare il bene

Happy birthday, John Bartram (March 23, 1699 – Sept. 22, 1777)!‪#‎Quaker‬. ‪#‎Abolitionist‬. Skeptic. Botanist. Founder of Philadelphia’s Bartram Gardens. Born in Darby, Pennsylvania. Died in Philadelphia. In 1758 Bartram was “read out” of the Darby Friends Meeting for questioning the divinity of Jesus. He wasn’t particularly traumatized by this, because he continued to attend Darby Friends Meeting with his wife and children until the end of his life. Buried in Darby Friends Cemetery, Darby, Pennsylvania. In June 1993, Bartram was “read back in” as a member of Darby Friends Meeting, with 300 of his descendants in attendance.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

We must act and dare the appropiateness and not whatever comes to our mind not floating in the likelihood but grasp the reality as brave as we can be freedom lies in action not in the absence of mind obedience knows the essence of good and satisfies it, freedom dares to act and returns God the ultimate judgment of what is right and what is wrong, Obedience performs blindly but Freedom is wide awake Freedom wants to know why, Obedience has its hands tied, Freedom is inventive obedient man respects God’s commands and by virtu of his Freedom, he creats new commands. Both Obedience and Freedom come true in responsability (Dietrich Bonhoeffer)
