Pastor John Ferne
I am very sorry to be unable to attend the funeral service! Our Synod has scheduled a once-a-year dinner for retired clergy on Thursday – and it’s in Findlay – meeting from 10:00 to 1:00.
Pastor Linder always said my dad, Pastor Gerald Ferne, provided the impetus for his decision to enter the ministry. Kingsway was my dad’s first congregation after leaving the Columbus seminary.
When I served Grace Lutheran as an Interim Pastor, again I had frequent contact with Pastor Linder. I really enjoyed working with him!
Again, I was so sorry to hear of his death – and especially sorry to be unable to attend the service.
