Letter to the editor — Appreciating with forgiveness

The recent helps in The Alabama Baptist on Pastor Appreciation Month were excellent, especially those written by Denise George.

I also would like to add the importance of forgiving the pastor for basic human faults and mistakes. Pastors struggle with odd personality traits and weaknesses just like we all do.

We should show grace to our pastor just as we do to family members, friends and others instead of letting the pastor’s shortcomings cause hard feelings and affect our attitude, worship and church life.

A little forgiveness would be good for us all, right?
