They Shaped My Life: Pastor Appreciation

I have an article printed in this month's Church of God Evangel magazine. It was written to say thank you to all the pastors I had as a youth and to tell others what I learned from each of them. It's called: They Shaped My Life (page 25). Some of these pastors have already gone to heaven, but I wish I'd thought to thank them. Though I was shy child, I realized that from each man, I learned something quite unique.

If you have or had a wonderful pastor, take time to tell him or her that you appreciate them. Send a card, or even better, a letter, to let them know how they've influenced your life. You'll be glad you did!

Then I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will lead you with knowledge and understanding. Jeremiah 3:15

Dee, I found and read the article - well-written, and how wonderful to have grown up in the church and to have been blessed and fed and encouraged and equipped by so many shepherds of God! Congrats as well on the publication!
