Write a Minister

The work of organizing, encouraging, and prodding along (in some cases) God’s people is difficult and draining for those who burden that responsibility.  We call these people ministers, but they don’t have to be clergy or even full time church staff.  A minister could be anyone who plays a significant role of ministering within a church.

Today write a letter to a minister and encourage them in their work.  It doesn’t have to be a long letter; just a quick note to say, I appreciate you and the gifts you are giving to our community.
