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.
An excellent resource for any pastor ministering within the United States’ growing Spanish-speaking community, El Libro provides a much-needed Reformed worship book in Spanish.
Three groups of Hispanic leaders within the PC(U.S.A.) helped guide this book of liturgies for leaders of Spanish speaking Presbyterians—and other Reformed churches—in the U.S. Like the Book of Common Worship it begins with an introduction to Reformed worship and provides various liturgies for the Service for the Lord’s Day with options to celebrate a baptism and/or the Lord’s Supper.
In addition to the Sunday worship service, the book includes liturgies for reception of new members, installation of church officers, worship with homebound members, marriage, quinceanera celebrations, and additional prayers and benedictions.
