Today is Christmas and if you haven't done so you're late, but let this be a reminder: Give your pastor(s) a Christmas present. You've probably done that already. But even if he or she is the biggest schmuck out there, his/her sermons stink, their bedside manners are lacking, etc. ... get 'em a Christmas prestent. Live out God's grace and bless your pastor with a Christmas present.

I bought my pastors a gift certificate to iTunes. PayPal had a deal where is you bought a gift certificate for a certain amount, you got some free songs yourself. So I blessed my pastors and blessed myself, or more likely, I'll bless my wife and pass them along to her. The deal runs through the end of the year.

When I was pastor of a church in Ohio, they would take a love offering for my family and give it to me at the Christmas eve service. We would leave from the church and drive 5 hours to NY to be with family. I can remember heading east on I90 balling my eyes out when we opened a card with a gift the size of one of my paychecks. Their generosity at Christmas was incredible. I'll never forget that.

If you missed getting your pastor or someone else a gift this Christmas, just give them something on January 6th. Tell them you celebrate Christmas on the eastern rite calendar.
