Many have heard the phrase, "Children are the future of the church," which is true. However, children are also the present of the church. This practical resource is filled with ideas to engage and involve children with worship in the church. It explores how participation in the Eucharist and other sacraments can enable children to experience greater depths of faith. Author Simon Rundell emphasizes sacramental worship with children, not merely for children. The book and CD include a wide range of prayers, songs, action responses, short talks and complete liturgies with visuals, videos and music suggestions, including:
A Nursery Rhyme Mass
Ideas for children's active participation in baptisms, weddings and funerals
Everyone desires to involve children in the life and worship of the Church, and yet we panic about how we canl engage them and enable them to express their innate spirituality. How does the sacramental life of the Church touch the lives of the young? How can the traditions of the Church come alive for those who are more attuned to television and computer games?
This ideas filled book offers a range of practical resources for engaging children and young people in worship in ways that are profoundly missional and attractive. It explores how participation in the Eucharist and other sacraments can enable children to encounter the depths of the faith without trivialization.
Exploring children's innate capacity for spirituality and the power of story telling, it provides a wide selection of prayers, songs, action responses, short talks and complete liturgies with visuals, videos and suggestions for music.
