The groom was at- tired in a black tuxedo with tails and a mauve cummerbund and Saint Luke, best known as the historian of the new Testa- ment, was a physician and a painter from Antioch. Neither a Jew nor an apostle, Luke be- came an early convert of Saint Paul; he later became his fellow co-worker. Though not an eye witness of Our Lord's life, this great Evan- gelist carefully amassed informa- tion from the mouths of the apostles, writing, as he states, "to write an orderly account." Many stories, such as the song of the angels, the visit of the shepherds at the birth of Jesus, Jesus as a young boy in the temple, and the parables of the Good Samaritan and the Lost Son are only found in the Gospel according to Luke. In fact, Luke records 20 miracles of Jesus, six of which are not found in other Gospels and of the many par- ables recounted in Scripture, 18 are exclusive to Luke. His gos- pel, meaning "Good News," places much emphasis on prayer, the Holy Spirit, the role of women in the ministry of Je- sus, and God's forgiveness of sins. As a sequel to his gospel, the Acts of the Apostles was written by Saint Luke to tell how Jesus' early followers, led by the Holy Spirit, spread the Good News John Wesley Church Thanks John Wesley United Method- ist Church would like to thank the following merchants and friends for their gifts and dona- tions during the 170th Anniver-- sary celebrated September 3.0,. 1990: Greenbrier Valley National Bank, Jackson's Ladies Shop, Grifflth- Bryant Ford, Inc., Lewisburg An- tiques & Collcctlbles, Ebenezer Out- reach Center of Iluntington, lleilig- Meycrs Furniture, Simms Exxon Sta- tion, Grecnbrler Insurance Agency, Ball Sports, Inc., The Open Book, Edith's Health & Specialty Store, McCraw Funeral Home, Lewisburg, Pioneer Drug Store, Crawfords, Fairlca, Appalachian Tire Products, [ne., The First National Bank of Ron- ccvcrte, Lewisburg Floral and Gifts, S.

It is a story of the Christian movement as it began among the Jewish people to become a faith for the whole world. This humble histo- rian never names himself in hls writings but by hls use of "we" for "they" we are able to realize his presence in his descriptive narratives. It was always Luke's concern to assure his readers that Christians were not a sub- versive political threat to the Roman Empire. From Saint Paul's Eplsfles we know that Luke sailed with Paul and Silas from Tons, on the Aegean Sea, to Macedonia, in the Balkans of Greece. From what is apparent, he stayed in Phillippi for seven years, and shared in the memorable shipwreck and perils of the voyage to Rome. At this point, Saint Luke's story ends, but, again from Paul, we learn that he was a faithful friend and frequent visitor dur- ing Paul's imprisonments. Luke died as a martyr in Achaia, Southern Greece. Saint Luke is the Patron Saint of doctors and painters. He is represented in art as a calf or an ox, the sacrificial animal. Saint Luke is honored with a feast day on October 18. Cornerstone Assembly of God, Charmco, was organized in 1986. The ] church first met in the Williams Building on Route 20.
