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.
QUICK TAKES FOR TEENS is a series of four books packed with activities and ideas that invite teens to enter into scripture and think through the important issues in their lives. No session plans, no agenda, no structure, just a wild smorgasbord of opportunities for your youth group: discussion, role playing, debates, brainstorming, polls, simple art, scripture study, games, prayer activities, skits and more.
Each book focuses on a different area of teen experience:
Volume 1 considers family issues: siblings, parents, divorce, curfews, chores.
Volume 2 works with tough emotions: anger, fear, depression, insecurity, guilt.
Volume 3 addresses world problems: hunger, AIDS, homelessness, racism, violence, materialism.
Volume 4 explores relationship issues: prejudice, peer pressures, moral choices, friendship skills, loneliness, jealousy.
Easy-to-find symbols throughout each volume lead you to the perfect one-shot activity for your group of teens and the time frame you have to work in.
