October is Clergy Appreciation Monthby Gordon P. Lawton
October has come to be known as Clergy (or Pastor) Appreciation Month. There are good resources which can be found on line. Also it is a great encouragement to a pastor to discover that their congregation cared enough to seek out a special date to remember; whether ordination or accreditation anniversary, wedding anniversary or milestone in service to this local congregation. Speaking of caring enough...Hallmark is in the business of making pastor appreciation cards.
Here is a link to help you think and plan http://www.parsonage.org/images/pdf/cam.pdf clergy appreciation planning guide from Focus on the Family. There is other material out there if you search the web.
