Until 697, Rupert was the Bishop of Worms. This city, located on the Rhine in what is now the southwest region of West Germany, is where Martin Luther was declared to be a heretic in 1512. After Rupert left his bishopric, he headed northwest to become a mis- sionary in Regensburg, a city on the Danube River in eastern Bavaria. At the time Duke Theodo was in charge of this territory. Needless to say, nothing could be done in the region without his permission• Once the Duke was converted and bap- tized as a Christian, Rupert and his followers had no trouble evangeliz- ing the other nobles and their sub- jects. Such success led to others along and around a wide area of the Danube. Many churches and teach- ing monasteries were built; the economy prospered. In 448, Attila the Hun had de- stroyed a little Celtic trading settle- ment, central to this region, called Juvavum -- named after the Roman diety that protected the youth. The area was rich in minerals, especially salt, had beautiful pasture lands both for the grazing and farming of beef and dairy cattle, acres of for- ests for timbering and many lakes and streams for pleasure and rec: reation. Rupert, with the help of the Duke and the other nobles, logically decided to help reconstruct the vil- lage for Rupert's regional base. The Benedictine Abbey of Saint Peter was already under construction so the remodeling and rebuilding of other destroyed buildings was only natural. The convent, known as the nunnery of Nonnberg, still stands today as a working architectural landmark from this very early period. In building communities, enrich- ing lives and contributing to the bod- ies and souls of his people, Rupert's little by-the-way Seventh Century central community is now known as Salzburg, Austria, Birthplace of Mozart, home of the annual Mozart Music Festival and an industrial, re- sort and tourist trade center. Saint Rupert died in his renamed community of Salzburg Easter Sun- day 710. He is recognized as their first Bishop and is honored for his love and devotion to the develop- ment of mankind with a feast day on March 27. Jim Sampson (left), Head Elder of the Lewisburg Seventh-Day Ad- ventist Church, is pictured with his new wife, Faith (second from left), who recently transferred her membership to the Lewisburg Seventh-Day Adventist Church. She moved here from Tennessee when they were married in November of 1989. Her daughter, Heather Johnson, and her daughter's boyfriend, Rob Wahto, attend college at Southern SDA College in Collegedale, Tennessee, and spent their spring break here tn Lewisburg at the Sampson's home. Grove, Bishop William Boyd Grove, resi- dent and presiding bishop for West Virginia United Methodists, will speak at Trinity and Elizabeth Chapel United Methodist Churches on Sunday, April 1. Services at Trinity are held at 11 tors, and for more than 142.,000 United Methodist lay persons. One of Bishop Grove's many poems has been set to music in the new United Methodist Hymnal.

Bishop Grove was elected and consecrated a bishop at the North- east Jurisdictional conference of the United Methodist Church in July, 1980. He has served as West Virginia's bishop since that time. Prior to his election as a bishop, he served 26 years as a pastor in the Western Pennsylvania Conference. A graduate of Bethany College, Bishop Grove also holds a Master of Divinity degree from Drew Univer- sity, Madison, New Jersey, and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Pitts- burgh Theological Seminary.
