October is Pastor Appreciation Month. Thank you to all our pastors who reflect the character of our Creator God in the ways they engage, equip, empower and encourage their members and neighbors. We honor you and thank you for your service.
I appreciate you, respect you and pray for you often. The struggle through the pandemic has tested and stretched you in ways that none of us could anticipate. Yet here you are still standing, still leaning on Jesus and participating with the Holy Spirit. You deserve a hearty pat on the back and a huge personal “Thank You!”
The Apostle Paul reminds us that “He can do all things, but only through Jesus” (Philippians 4:13). Please know that when things don’t seem possible, God can do the impossible. When you think that leading the church cannot be done, Jesus is the Head overseeing the Body in ways that only he can.
During this month of pastor appreciation take a few moments each day to “Be still and know that God is God” and that he has you, your family and the church you shepherd in his hands.
In Sincere Appreciation!
