Clergy Appreciation

Leader: Good Shepherd of the sheep, you have appointed some to be pastors and teachers, under-shepherds of our souls. For this we give thanks.
   
People: We rejoice that they follow in the tradition of the apostles and prophets of old.
   
Leader: Apostles are commissioned as delegates of the Lord Jesus Christ to bring the Word of God to the unbelieving.
   
People: They proclaim the good news of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
   
Leader: After Jesus prayed, he then selected the initial twelve apostles to further his teaching.
   
People: They were trained by his example to carry on his ministry after his departure.
   
Leader: Jesus commissioned seventy more apostles, representing all the nations of the world.
   
People: After his departure, the apostles testified to his resurrection. Barnabas and Andronicus, Junia and Paul, were added to this group.
   
Leader: The prophets are messengers to the believing Church, discerned as instruments of fresh revelations.
   
People: They included Anna and Simeon, the prophets at Antioch and Jerusalem, and finally, Philipís daughters.
   
Leader: Prophets give inspired instruction in moral and religious truth. Some are endowed with literary powers, and commit their visions and revelations to writing.
   
People: Prophets edify, comfort, and counsel Godís people.
   
Leader: Among the apostles and prophets whom we honor today are Richard Allen and Absolam Jones, Jarena Lee, Lemuel Haynes, Sojourner Truth, and Bishops Mason and Lawson.
   
People: Thanks be to God!
   
Leader: We also honor Adam Clayton Powell Jr., Benjamin Mays, Howard Thurman, Pauli Murray, Martin Luther King Jr., C. L. Franklin, J. H. Jackson, and Samuel Proctor. We give thanks for unnamed servants of the Lord, women and men of the past, as well as those who serve us today.
   
People: Thanks be to God!
   
Leader: Our clergy announce Godís will with authority, honoring the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus. They take heed to build carefully upon his foundation, studying and rightly dividing the word of truth.
   
People: Thanks be to God for the diligent efforts of our clergy!
