y from the Knoxville Sentineil of the
o Rev. M. M.., Kinard, Ph. D., pastor
,f of the St. John's Evangelical Luther
e an chureIr of this city, tendered his
I resignation to the council and eon
a gregation of his church at the morning
r. Dr. Kinard has been called to be
,f come pastor of a strongl influential
L- church in Salisbury, N. C. This church
was organized more than 100 years
I ago, the first church of the early Salis
n bury, and has not only survived but
d grown strong in numbers and influ
n. ence with the passing year'. The con
I- gregation is the center of Lutheranism
h in the county, as Salisbury is a een
e ter. There are eighteen separate
n Lutheran pastorates in the county of
n Rowan, with one-half the population
ht of the Oounty Lutheran. A number
t of those congregations are daughters
e of St. John's, the mother church in
e Salisbury. This old congregation has
s a fine property and equipment.
d Dr. Kinard has been lpastor of St.
John's Lutheran church here for three
and a half years. He came to this
city from Columbia, S. C., where he
began his first pastorate after ordina
n tion. He served his first church six
y teen years before coming to Knoxville.
s Dr. Kinard is a native South Carolin
. inn. In presenting his resignation
,yesterday he stated that there had
r not been a jar between his people and
himself from the first day lie came to
the e4tureh to the present hour. A
i1co0regational meeting was announe
n ed for the second Sunday in July, to
take final action on the pastor's resig
The announcement of Dr. Kinard's
a resignation will, be received with gen
eral regret in the church and other
circles in this city in which lie is
known. Dr. Kinard has, during- his
residence of almost four years in
Knoxville, made hundreds-of friends
in all denominations. He is ap able
minister, a learned man and an elo
quent and finished orator. His wide
r popularity will cause him to be -rcat
h ly missed in this city. His public
spiritedness and- interest in the gener
al welfare of the community have
commended him to all people, irres
pective of religious affiliation. lie
'will no0 doubt cnteor into his work in
.Salisbury with the same zeal that lias
enabled him to attain such distine
e tiveC success in theO local field.
It is refreshing to both Dr. Kin
h~ ard andl the members of his conigre
e gation to know that his resignation
'comes 'as purely a voluntary action
up)on his part, after having been per-~
sistently urged by the Salisbury
c hurch and officeials of high, station in
his denomination to go to thle North
a Carolina parish. He will leave the
e local church with the blessings and
best wishes of every member of St.
John 's, who highly prize his ability
and his great value to the church, and
f who connnend him for the faithful
e anid successful work he has done in
