There seem to be two opposing camps when it comes to children's participation in congregational worship.
On one side are those who say that worship is really for adults—that children should be taught to behave until they appreciate what is going on, or that they (and their parents) should be relieved by the provision of a children's church or other activity during the worship hour.
On the other side are those who say that worship should be reworked entirely, to make it appealing to children. Proponents of this side claim that once adults loosen up and begin to worship as children worship, they will not miss the staid old adult-oriented forms.
In this series, Carolyn C. Brown carves out a middle ground. Any worship leader serious about planning worship that includes children must read this series!
