John Wesley A. M. E. Z. Congregation Started
By Group From Asbury Church TOO Years Ago
Edifice at Fourteenth and Corcoran streets N.W. One of a series of sketches by Star Artist

By Caspar Nannes
John Wesley A. M. E. Zion Church,
the National Church of Zion Meth
odism, traces its origins to John
Brent and John Ingrain 100 years
ago.
These men who
worshiped with
other Negroes
at the Asbury
Methodist Epis
copal Church at
Eleventh and K
streets N.W., un
aer me ministry
of white leaders,
withdrew with
seven other per
sons to start an
independ ent
worship group.
Those joining
with them were Dr- Spottiwood.
John Tillman, Charles Woodson,
Arnold Bowie, Joseph Kinney, Eliza
Curtis, Forrester Young and Martha
E. Pennington.
The “Little Society of Nine” met
for two years in the home of Mr.
Brent at 1800 L street N.W.* Dim
ing these years membership, in
what eventually became the John
Wesley A. M. E. Z. Church, grew
steadily. In 1851 a one-story struc
ture was erected in the 1100 block
of Connecticut avenue N.W., op
posite where the Mayflower Hotel
today stands, where the congrega
tion worshiped under the ministry
of the Rev. Abraham Cole. In
1853 another story was added. This
improved building was dedicated
December 13, 1853, the Rev. Jesse
Cowles then being pastor.
In 1902 the congregation bought
the Berean Baptist Church Build

ated with the church for more than
50 years are Mrs. Henrietta Arm

Miss Virginia Bosley and Mrs.

Miracles
and Science
Many do not believe in a miracle such as Christ’s rising from
the tomb, and think their skepticism is a sign of intelligence.
Yet might minds of science have humbly accepted the Easter
miracle. Michael Faraday, whose discoveries laid the founda
tions of modem electrical science, said he believed in “Him
who died, who rose again, the Son of God.” Dr. Arthur
Compton, discovered of the cosmic ray, says Christian beliefs
are totally in keeping with science.

current condi
tions, became a
kingdom, then
split into two
kingdoms, then
disappeared as
a government to
be revived lor a
short period w. T. mu.
under the Macabees, then, for more
than two thousand years, to be
come wanderers over the face of
the egrth. Today they are in an
apparently hopples* struggle for re
vived nationhood
Wrapped up in Israel’s determina
tion to have a king, like the other
nations, is the picture of today’s
life.
Israel’s sin lay in an aping of her
worldly neighbors. Commissioned
by Cod to a peculiar destiny, Israel
belittled herself by pursuing the
cheap and glittering aspirations of
unworthy people. •
Israel’s neighbors had kings: so
Israel would have a king also. The
people were deaf to the Prophet
Samuel’s warning. He told them
that they were rejecting their real
Deliverer and Ruler. As the patient
God, who so honors the spirit of
liberty and choice He has bestowed
upon man that He even helps him
in his second-best decision. He let
the people have their way. So He
bade Samuel anoint a king.
Like a story book tale is the choice
of Saul to be king. He came cf good
stock and was physically head and
shoulders above any other man In
Israel.
Saul’s story is a story of moral
decline. He was a princely youth,
devoted to and dependent upon the
Prophet Samuel. But he could not
endure success. When he was little
in his own sight, Samuel reminded
him, he was big in God’s eyes; when
he grew great in bis own eyes, he
was small in the sight of God. How
often we have seen that record
repeated!
The Sunday school lesson for
April 13 is “The Kingdom Estab
lished.’—I Samuel. 9-19; 28:13.
