Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
The 9 sessions address:
Participants will experience how current events intersect with the Scriptures and Christian belief. More than a study of the issues, participants will learn how individual Christians and congregations use United Methodist teachings to shape relevant ministries in their communities. These self-contained (stand alone), short-term studies are complete with session plans, activities, discussion questions, and after-session strategies for living out Christian faith.
