October is Pastor Appreciation Month. And even though it’s almost over doesn’t mean it’s ever too late for a thank-you card.
I just finished making the cards I’ll be giving out at church tomorrow, so if you’re itching for something nice to say to a church-leader (or his/her long-suffering spouse) I might have a suggestion for you.
As the daughter of church musicians I feel very strongly that they too should be included in this time of acknowledgment and thanks, along with their families. All that time pastors spend preparing for sermons, counseling, and being “on-call” is time taken away from their families.
Yes, it’s a calling, and we trust God to provide strength in all situations, but no leader is immune to the encouragement of a genuine thank you.
Please don’t forget.
