And then forward it on to the ministry leaders in your congregation. As you do so, please offer some words of blessing and encouragement.
And be sure to pray for them. Ministry's not an easy road.
"Appreciate your pastoral leaders who gave you the Word of God. Take a good look at the way they live, and let their faithfulness instruct you, as well as their truthfulness. There should be a consistency that runs through us all ... Be responsive to your pastoral leaders. Listen to their counsel. They are alert to the condition of your lives and work under the strict supervision of God. Contribute to the joy of their leadership, not its drudgery. Why would you want to make things harder for them?"
- Hebrews 13:7, 17 (The Message).
