Rev. Elder Don Eastman

As Remembered by Bruce Kallies

Rev. Eastman was my pastor in Neenah, Wisconsin in the late 1960’s and early ’70s.  He was a strong and positive influence, at a very difficult time in my life.  I have many wonderful memories of him.  He was in my wedding party.  After he moved to Des Moines we kept in touch and I visited him there.  I met him briefly in an airport, but lost contact with him after that.  I saw him on Nightline debating Madelyn Murray O’Hare.  He has visited with presidents and has surely lived a more exciting life than I have.  I am in my 28th year as a pastor in Rochester, Minnesota.  I remember vividly, a sermon that he preached 45 years ago about the great feast that King Belshazzar served.
