Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

any good thing I can do...

any good thing I can do

William Penn was an English founder
and 'Absolute Proprietor'
of the Province of Pennsylvania,
the English North American colony
and the future U.S. State of Pennsylvania.
He was known as an early champion of
democracy and religious freedom
and famous for his good relations
and his treaties with the Lenape Indians.
Under his direction,
Philadelphia was planned and developed.

As one of the earlier supporters
of colonial unification,
Penn wrote and urged for
a Union of all the English colonies
in what was to become
the United States of America.
The democratic principles that he set forth
in the Pennsylvania Frame(s) of Government
served as an inspiration for
the United States Constitution.”

I expect to pass through life but once.
If therefore, there be any
kindness I can show,
or any good thing I can do
to any fellow being, let me do it now,
and not defer or neglect it,
as I shall not pass this way again.”

- William Penn
