    As I was studying this week in preparation for this message, I came across something that I hadn't known before that I found interesting. Did you know that October is Pastoral Appreciation Month? A whole month dedicated to appreciating your pastor. Apparently there are entire websites devoted to sharing ideas about how to show appreciation for your pastor. One website even held a contest to see who could come up with the best pastor appreciation idea, and people voted and everything. Some of the ideas were quite normal—good ideas. Some people suggested taking time to write letters of appreciation, or fill a jar with index cards with encouraging notes on them. Another idea was to have members of the congregation volunteer to serve the pastor in practical ways, like changing the oil in his car or coming over to his house to mow the lawn.

    But as I read on, the ideas got stranger and stranger. One thought was to enroll your pastor in the “Pie of the Month” club, where each month he would get a different homemade pie. And I thought, “OK, pie is good. But is that really the measure for whether a pastor feels appreciated or not?” Another suggestion was to gather embarrassing pictures from your pastor's youth, assemble them into a PowerPoint slideshow, set it to music, and show it to him in front of everybody. Apparently some people have different definitions of the word “appreciation.” They went on: Take out a newspaper advertisement to honor your pastor, plant a tree in his honor, have a church “parade” in which members of the congregation would pass by and say something encouraging to the pastor...
