Church of Our Father – Meeting Minutes, Mar 8, 1896 (Church Apathy – Call Rev. Vail)

Atlanta, Ga, March 8, 1896

A special meeting of the Church membership was called to discuss the question of a permanent minster.

Letters were read, opinions expressed and the Clerk was instructed to open every available channel for the selection of a pastor.

After some discussion of the seeming apathy of the Church, it was determined to appoint a Committee on Progress, of which was to stimulate interest and stir up enthusiasm. The Committee as appointed was Messrs. Brigham, Hall and Behre. Prof. Davidson corroborated a statement made by Mr. Brigham to the effect that Rev. W.S. Vail of Wichita, Kansa, if available, was a proper person for our field. The information given was of such nature, that the meeting instructed the Clerk to communicate with Mr. Vail and arrange for a trail visit.

Minor matters received some attention.
