Well, that wasn’t my intended question, but it was the one I asked someone tonight.
The Spanish Lesson:
There is just a slight difference in the verbs to preach and to sin.
To Sin – pecar
To Preach – predicar
Well, they look a lot different than when you say then. Then go to the next step and make it the ing form of the verbs and you get pecando and predicando.
For the Friday night church services, two of the pastors, a church member, and I drive big trucks to four different neighborhoods to pick people up for church. I arrived to hand out the keys and one of the pastors, Domingo, was already there. He normally wears a nice shirt and pants, but tonight he had on a tie, and so I asked, “Estas pecando?” The strange look on his face let me know that I had made a mistake. I quickly reviewed the phrase in my head and realized my error. If only I had asked him if he was fishing, pescando, instead. Oh, well, we shared a good laugh.Share
