Unitarian Church of Atlanta Letter – Oct 10, 1905 (Recommend Calling Rev. Sanborn)

Atlanta, Ga. 10 October 1905

To the Congregation of the Unitarian Church of Atlanta.

Friends, we your committee, appointed at a special meeting of the congregation held on 21st day May 1905, for the purpose of supplying the pulpit temporarily and for the purpose of recommending a minister for our parish, do respectfully report:

1. That during the long and trying summer just past lay services have been regularly held in our church each Sunday morning which services have been attended by a larger number of the members of the parish than have attended services at any similar period for years in the past.

2. Your committee have had considerable correspondence with those interested in the welfare of the church. Through this correspondence they have been introduced to the Rev. Moore Sanborn who, at the invitation of the committee has preached and conducted services in our church for the last three Sundays.

3. We do respectfully recommend to the congregation that Mr. Sanborn be unanimously called to our church as minister from the present time up to and including the year ending December 31, 1906, and  we suggest that in making said call that the expression of the congregation be by a rising vote.

Respectively submitted,


J.G. St. Amand
