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.
