Sad to hear of Pastor Nenow passing to glory. He confirmed me in the Lutheran church in Bristol, TN in 1963. I left the church in 1969 partly due to how they treated pastor but, more importantly, I came back to the church largely because of the faith Pastor Nenow had planted in me in Catechism Class. I went on to become a Commissioned Deacon in the LC-MS and even served a year as a Vacancy Pastor before my health and eyesight got too bad. I wish I had looked up Pastor Nenow to thank him for his faithful work in planting faith in a young man. He was a great, Confessional Lutheran Pastor. Timothy Carter, simple country Deacon.
