Publishers Description This fresh collection of group readings and simple dramas based on stories from Scripture, together with meditations, story-telling methodology and an instructed Eucharist, will help church leaders design liturgy for children and grownups who worship together. 1. Introductory Material: practical background and instruction about organizing and arranging intergenerational worship, with special emphasis on children's needs. 2. Seasonal Introductions: Themes and ideas for each liturgical season including collects, confessions, etc. 3. Congregational Readings: simple group readings of Scripture that engage both reader and people. 4. Meditations: Quiet, imaginative reflections on scripture, or water, or fire, that lead listeners deep inside themselves, even at worship. 5. Simple Dramas: Biblical stories in which characters speak for themselves (martha and Mar, Mary and Elizabeth, Elijah and Elisha, etc.) to the worshipers; some are quite playful and some are more serious. 6. Stories: biblical stories told very colorfully and simply, sometimes in the first person of a character in the story. 7. Simple Sermons: simple, colorful, soulful, short sermons that even grownups can sit still for. 8. Tableauxs Vivants: "Living Pictures"- how to do them, and several pieces written and staged. 9 Appendices: Methods of storytelling and An instructed Eucharist "
