Pastor Appreciation Idea: It's Never Too Late!

OK - it's October and Pastor Appreciation Month is upon us. But don't panic, it's never too late to get something together to show your appreciation.

If tomorrow is Pastor Appreciation Sunday at your church, pull a thank you note out of your drawer and use one of these poems.

If you've got a little more time, consider an appreciation gift.

You might also want to take the time to create a pastor tribute.

Whatever you do, just put a little of yourself into it and express genuine appreciation. In the end, that will mean the most to your pastor and his family.
