Item description for Feeding the Lambs: A Worship Primer for Teachers of Children by Christopher I. Thoma...
Overview Receiving the wonderful gift of forgiveness in worship is at the center of our lives in Christ! Digging into and understanding this reality is crucial in our approach to youth work. Writing from his personal experience of over a decade as a Director of Christian Education in the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, Christopher Thoma explores the depths of worship and its relevance in the lives of children. Thoma offers intuitive and practical insights which encourage parents, pastors, teachers and youth workers to celebrate the fullness of worship as the fold in which Jesus safely keeps and richly feeds His flock--a flock that includes the lambs! "Rather than diluting the liturgy to a child-like level that will quickly render it obsolete, Thoma offers an approach that will draw children into the Divine Service, the church year, and hymnody. This book is a must-read for pastors and Christian educators as well as parents." -John T. Pless Assistant Professor of Pastoral Ministry and Missions/Director of Field Education Concordia Theological Seminary Fort Wayne, IN

Great Book on children and worship Nov 2, 2008
This is a wonderful book on children and worship. It is written by an experienced pastor and youth worker, who holds up that children need the Word of God and the liturgy of the church. I highly recommend it.
