October is traditionally the month we celebrate Clergy (Pastor) Appreciation Month. Let us thank God for our ministers who are:
- Called to ministry.
- Compassionate toward others.
- Capable to preach/teach.
- Courageous in leadership.
- Creative in their thinking.
- Communicates encouragement.
- Committed to their assignment.
Think of creative ways you can bless your pastor and his wife during this month. Pastors need encouragement just as all of us do. Your call, email, letter, or special gift will go along way to lift the spirit of your pastor.
[Editor's comment: I received this information from my conference superintendent, Bishop Tim Lamb, (LifePoint Ministries (Georgia) Conference. We are grateful for his excellent leadership and pastoral gifts.]
