Daniel Erdman: Servant Leader

As we celebrate Thanksgiving, we are thankful for Bread members like Rev. Daniel Erdman.

Daniel was recently named  Adult Servant Leader Honoree for the Second Annual Called Back to the Well Servant Leader Breakfast.  The honor was presented by the United Church of Christ Southwest Conference on November 3.

Daniel, who is ordained in the Presbyterian Church USA (Presbytery of Santa Fe), is pastor of Iglesia Congregacional Unida in Albuquerque, a primarily Spanish-speaking congregation.

He has spoken out on a number of justice issues, including immigrant rights, fair wages, repealing the death penalty and other important matters.

But that's not all.  Daniel is Coordinator of Congregational and Community Outreach for the New Mexico Conference of Churches.  And he and his wife Anne Sensening are members of  L@s Otr@s, a group that often performs songs from El Salvador and other Latin American countries at the annual commemoration of Monsignor Oscar Romero in Albuquerque.

And did I mention that he once served as Hunger Action Enabler for the Presbytery of Santa Fe? 

Oh wait.  He is also a fellow blogger, touching on themes dealing with Scripture.  Read Daniel ICU

Congratulations Daniel!
