Dear [Recipients Name],

I was profoundly touched by your words from the pulpit last week. It seemed that you were speaking directly to me in my hour of need, and your words of comfort after the service were much appreciated. I left the church feeling better than I had in a long time and looked forward to your words next week with a feeling of hope. I feel extremely grateful that our church is lucky enough to have you leading the whole congregation.
