Dear Annie: I am the pastor of a beautiful church in a small urban community. Because we have a beautiful sanctuary – and also because many ministers will not conduct weddings for nonmembers in this area – we get a lot of requests to have weddings in our church. Because I think it’s important for every human being to know a minister to whom they can turn in the case of an emergency, I am willing to do these weddings and have never charged a fee for doing so. At one time, the couples I married really appreciated this effort and sent thank-you cards, small gifts or cash honorariums. However, the most recent four couples I married did not even bother to send a thank-you note. These are people who spend $15,000 on a wedding and apparently don’t think the minister’s time is worth compensation or appreciation.
