Clergy Appreciation Month
The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching.
– 1 Timothy 5:17
Did you know that October is Clergy Appreciation Month? When was the last time you thanked your pastor, priest, or reverend for all the hard work they do? The work of a pastor is not easy. God has called them to look after the spiritual well being of His flock. Imagine the pressures of guiding dozens, hundreds, or even thousands to their eternal salvation. Not to mention the worldly pressures of living a life in the spotlight – always expected to have the “perfect” family and say the “right thing”.
The next time you see your clergy, let them know how much you appreciate their hard work. Remind others in your church that it’s Clergy Appreciation Month. Do something special for him or her.
