As a public service to grateful parishioners, I've scoured the internet for Pastor Appreciation Month gift suggestions. If you really want to impress your pastor and guarantee your name is written in the Book of Life, you'll purchase at least one of these thoughtful gifts.
Any pastor would be proud to display this appreciation plaque in his office. It would likely make up for all the trophies he didn't win in elementary school and give him new-found confidence in his pastoral abilities. Plus the faux crystal is shiny.
What pastor wouldn't want a mini-pulpit with a cheesy poem on it to place on his or her bookcase next to the copy of Rabbi Friedman's "Generation to Generation?" It's also fun to preach to stuffed animals using sock puppets.
Every pastor loves cake. Especially cake shaped like a vaguely religious looking book. Make sure to personally deliver it to the pastor's house at an inconvenient time (which would pretty much be at any hour).
Anytime you can give a pastor a framed saying that feeds into the inherent Messiah complex, you've done a good deed. If you really want to do it right, throw in a pair of birkenstocks, a toga, and a crown of thorns.
Most pastors don't have nearly enough crosses in their lives. Usually only fifteen or so hung up in their offices plus countless others in their homes. What they really need is one more with "Pastor" written across it to remind them of Christ's self-giving sacrifice on Cavalry.
If none of these gift ideas resonate with you, here are a few other possibilities:
The area clergy here in western SD usually throw our own Clergy Appreciation party in October. We usually do an Easter Recovery party too.
You so often say that which we think, but are too "timid" to say. Amen!
Thanks, Jack. Yes, mine is a "prophetic" voice. Of course things don't usually work out too well for your average OT prophet...
Hard to believe one could laugh and retch at the same time, but it's actually possible.
I realize it is a play on words, but your title is "Rector" so don't get your hopes up! Well, perhaps one of those rear window stickers for the car that says "Pastor" in hopes of not getting a ticket....sort of like the FOP stickers that don't work!
