Liberal Christian Church – Meeting Minutes, Apr 6, 1926 (Monthly Meeting of Trustees)



April 6, 1926.

The regular meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Liberal Christian Church was held at the Kimball House restaurant at 6 p.m., Tuesday, April 6, 1926, all members being present, and with Mr. T. C. Perkins, Chairman of the Finance Committee in attendance. After all had enjoyed supper together, President Harding called the meeting to order, and the minutes of the last regular meeting were read and approved. A financial statement was presented by Mr. Rogers, the Treasurer, to each one present, and this showed a balance of $174.60 on hand.

A motion was made and carried that the organist, Mr. Paul Hubbard, and the minister have charge of the music.

Mr. Perkins at this time brought to the attention of the Trustees the matter of changing the arrangement of the organ, as requested and suggested by Mr. Hubbard. He stated that Mr. Hubbard wanted to have key-board of the organ changed from its present position, so that he could observe the soloist to better advantage; and that Mr. Hubbard felt that better results could be obtained by making this change. Upon motion by Mrs. Stanford which was seconded, it was voted to change the arrangement of the, organ, as suggested.

The approaching convention of the Southern Unitarian Conference at Orlando, Fla., was next discussed, and it was voted that Mrs. John W. Rowlett be sent as a delegate from this parish, her travelling expenses for the trip to be paid by this church.

Mr. Perkins gave a report of what had been done by the Pulpit Supply Committee in arranging a fine series of addresses on the general subject of the Ethical and Religious Significance of Science, beginning April 11th and continuing through May 9th. He told the Trustees that the committee had secured the cooperation of the following men to give addresses on succeeding Sundays during the series: Rev. Mr. J. B. Tegarden, of New Orleans; Rev. Mr. Frederick R. Griffin, D. D., of Philadelphia; Rev. Mr. Lon R. Call, of Louisville, Ky.; Dr. Robert C. Rhodes, of Emory University; Rabbi David Marx, D. D., of this city; and Rev. Stannard D. Butler, D. D., of St. Petersburg, Fla. Mr. Perkins stated that folders announcing the series would be ready for distribution in a few days. It was suggested that wide distribution of these folders be made. He also stated that this series would be advertised in the press.

At this time, it was voted that the Pulpit Supply Committee and the Finance Committee be invited to meet with the Board of Trustees at their regular meetings.

There being no other business, the meeting was then adjourned.

Arthur H. Scott, Clerk.
