I Love Pastors
Monthly Report - October2017
Pastors are some of my favorite people. My life has been influenced greatly by godly pastors. Pastors are some of my greatest heroes. My father was my pastor for eighteen years. He was a faithful servant of the Lord and set a good example for me in ministry. I have served under some wonderful pastors like Dr Gene Williams, Dr Millard Reed, Reverend I W Justice, and Dr D W Thaxton. Other pastors - Reverend Tom Cook, Reverend Dale Taylor, Reverend Arnie Leidy, Reverend Michael Johnson, and Reverend Robert Sinclair - have given pastoral care. October is Clergy Appreciation Month The second Sunday in October has been designated as Pastor Appreciation Sunday. It is a time to recognize the work of ministers and pastors in the United States. Yes, pas-tors should be appreciated all the time, every day, every week, each month, but Oc-tober is designated as a month to show appreciation for our pastors. A Pastor’s Heart by Deanna Malawy I love this poem. It is an acrostic for the word pastor. A Pastor’s Heart is Protective and guards his/her flock from Satan’s snares. A Pastor’s Heart is Attentive and seeks to know his/her people’s cares. A Pastor’s Heart is Sacrificial and for his/her sheep gives it’s all. A Pastor’s Heart is Tender and listens to the Spirit’s call. A Pastor’s Heart is Obedient and heeds the Master’s commands. A Pastor’s Heart is Reflective and considers he is but a man. With Appreciation for Your Ministry What I Pray for You: Guidance: For the paths your feet will daily follow. Wisdom: For the counsel you are asked to give. Compassion: For those you are called to help. What I Wish for You: To stand for what is true and right, even when there is opposition. Courage: To press on, even when things seen routine. Perseverance: To follow the desires God has placed in your heart. What I’d Give to You: Support: For your leadership. Appreciation: For your calling and gifts. Thanks: For the person you are in Christ. God Made Pastors God laid His hand upon them and breathed hope into their spirit He filled them with His strength and placed a message of urgency around their lives God challenged them to greater works than He had ever done Then, with His hand of blessing He wrapped them up in His mantle of love And called them Pastors The reason, pastor, that you mean so much to me is that when I look at you, it’s Jesus that I see. Let’s find ways to love, honor, appreciate, and thank our pastors daily. ~J Fred Huff
