Whoever first decided to make an “___ awareness month” sure started a crazy trend. Now we also have “___ appreciation” months, too! Last month, it was Gospel Music Heritage Month, but it was also National Bourbon Heritage Month, as well as National Honey Month, and Pain Awareness Month…and that was just a partial list for September!
Well, along with all the other things to be aware of and commemorate in October, it is now also Pastor Appreciation Month. If you’re going to spend a month appreciating pastors, October is a good time to do it — at least in churches that celebrate the Reformation or Luther’s posting of the 95 Theses (which happened 10/31).
