In a little
while I will be appointed your new pastor.
I find that to be a pastor takes time and involves building trust. This means
getting to know each other and eventually exploring what God may be doing in our lives
the meanwhile, it can be a bit of a roller coaster. Why is
some, there are expectations that I will be like the Pastor leaving; for others, there can be hopes that I
won’t be. Where ever you may find yourself in this spectrum, I would ask that you keep me and my family in
about us: I have a wife, Denise, and two adult children. My daughter is currently
attending St. Martin’s University and my son is in the process to become an electrician. In addition, my wife’s mother
lives in Lacey and requires a fair amount of care. I have been serving God through
the United Methodist church for close to forty years. It is my conviction that God
continues to move in
our world and in each of our lives.
I hope that in the time we share together, you too will become all the more
convinced of this as well.
peace, Pastor Dan
A Farewell letter from Rev. Ferdie...
June 29, 2018
My time is almost up! In two days I am officially no longer your pastor. Before my term ends, let me
say it for the last time: thank you for the love, mission, prayer, food and fun that we did together.
I am so grateful to be followed by Rev. Dan Breznau. As some of you know, Pastor Dan is a gifted leader
with great skills in spiritual direction, teaching, and pastoral care. I am hopeful that you will generously give
him the same love and support you showered my family and me. I will be committed as well of observing the pastoral
protocol of disengaging from Bethany to make way for the ministry of Pastor Dan.
Farewell friends. Though this is goodbye, the love we shared together will continue to connect us in a
special way. After all, wherever we serve, we are all embraced by this one vast kingdom of belongingness in Christ.
From Louie, JD, Hiram, Theo and me, thank you for the 3 amazing years!
