Ready-to-use liturgies with music, for all seasons of the church year
Offers a practical guide for child-directed, inclusive worship
Grace Episcopal Church, Oak Park, Illinois has become a model for how to engage all generations in an experiential and fully inclusive Eucharistic liturgy. The Rite Place is a 30-minute service designed for young children and their households in response to the congregation’s desire to offer welcoming worship for all ages.
This book has three parts: the theology of intergenerational worship, including pastoral issues and how a church might get started to implement such a model; the use of music as an integral piece to worship as formation; and complete liturgies for Advent/Christmas/Epiphany, Ash Wednesday, Lent, Maundy Thursday/
Good Friday, Easter, and the Season of Pentecost/Summer that are accessible for other congregations to use in their own settings.
For clergy, Christian educators, musicians, liturgists, Episcopal schools, chaplains, children’s hospitals, seminaries, and faith formation organizations.
