What a great initiative in the US! A chance to thank and acknowledge these hard working ministers for all the seen and unseen things they do for their churches. We are so glad to know churches around the US are finding ways to encourage their pastors.
We would just make one, small change - include the entire clergy family! While technically one person is generally paid, the whole family is really helping out :) Finding ways to acknowledge all clergy family members goes a long way towards encouraging them in their work and life as a family.
Here in Australia, we are wondering: should adopt Clergy Family Appreciation Month, what do you think?
With so many ways to encourage people, the sky is the limit- all it needs is a bit of time and understanding of your clergy family and what might help them feel appreciated and encouraged.
Have a lovely weekend.
