A Letter to the Church Office Manager/Secretary/Admin. Asst.

Dear Church Office Person,

I just wanted to take the time to thank you for your warm smile and friendly reception. Day after day you get to deal with so many "interesting" people. We know this is a thankless task that requires a whole lot of work for a meager paycheck...probably a little less than $100k a year. Highway Robbery.

Your skills require you to work with pastors, youth pastors, and volunteers, which can be a great joy, and a royal pain in the rear, all at the same time. From setting important meetings, to organizing the churches dart-ball championship match...your resume is a dynamo of hidden talents.

When you wanted to build a brick wall to keep the everyday wanderer from monopolizing your time, you resisted, and listened to Joe Talker drone on for hours. And you did it all with a warm smile, and polite nodding.

So here's to you Church Office Secretary, may you enjoy the one week in the year we honor your profession, unless we forget it about it. Let's face you're the only one who knows how to use a calendar around here.

God Bless
