Children at Worship: Congregations in Bloom

by Caroline S. Fairless. Church Publishing Incorporated, 2000.

In 'Children at Worship: Congregations in Bloom', Caroline S. Fairless shows how a parish can incorporate its children into full participation with the worshiping community. Tapping their creativity to design a spectacular array of materials for worship—a storyteller’s cloak, prayer cards, confession stones, rap sermons, sculpture, and painting—liturgy comes intensely alive for parishioners of all ages. As Fairless demonstrates, the full participation of children in corporate worship, while not a simple matter, is deeply rewarding. An introduction by Louis Weil, professor at Church Divinity School of the Pacific, provides the theological rationale for the inclusion of 'all' baptized members in the worship life of the community.
