The Chariton Leader, Chariton, Iowa
Thursday, July 25, 2907
The community was taken completely by surprise in the resignation of Rev.
PALMER as Pastor of the Chariton Baptist Church. At the close of the
morning service last Sunday he presented his resignation to take effect
September 1st. Their minister spoke with much feeling, and at some length
concerning the matter, which he said was wholly personal with himself, and
that his relation with the church had been most cordial and pleasant, and
that the church in its entire membership had been most loyal and faithful.
Several of the members spoke of the universal regret over the severing of
their pastoral relation, and in words of hearty commendation of their pastor
Rev. PALMER said that while the resignation might seem sudden, and
unexpected, he had had the matter under advisement for several weeks. He
has accepted a call to Boulder, Colo., a city of over 12,000, twenty-nine
miles from Denver; the State University is located there, and the work among
students especially appealed to him. The Baptist Church in Boulder is one
of the four strongest in Colorado, with a membership of 500.
In his closing remarks he spoke of the difficulty, not only of leaving the
church, but also of the sore trial to part with their many valued friends in
Chariton and Lucas County. His resignation will call for the giving up of
the position of President of the Chariton Ministerial Association, and as a
member of the Board of Managers of the Iowa Baptist State Convention, which
looks after the welfare of over 400 churches in Iowa. He will still retain
his place as a member of the Board of Trustees of Central University, at
