Unitarian Church of Atlanta – Meeting Minutes, Oct 15, 1905 (Rev. Sanborn Accepts Call to be Pastor)

Atlanta, Ga. October 15, 1905

At the quarterly meeting of the church held October 11, 1905, the Rev. Moore Sanborn on being notified by the entire committee on pulpit supply of the action of the meeting of the church in calling him to the pastorate of the church stated to the committee that he would give his decision after the morning service Sunday October 15th at the close of the service.

Rev. Mr. Sanborn asked the congregation and friends to, remain, not withstanding the inclemency of the day, there were 115 present all of whom remained with eager hearts with the hope that Mr. Sanborn’s decision would be favorable. Mr. Sanborn’s remarks were very touching and when he uttered the words “I will remain with you” an outburst of applause ran through the entire church, lasting several minutes and a regular love feast took place on disbanding.
