Children and Worship at Colam
The workshops on children and worship at the Conference on Liturgy and Music at Redeemer College were to be led by Melody Takken-Meeter. However, due to a recent move, she will be unable to attend the conference.
The COLAM Committee is delighted to announce that Sonja Stewart, coauthor of Children and Worship, has consented to come instead. Dr. Stewart, professor at Western Theological Seminary in Holland, Michigan, teaches the children and worship course there and in many workshops around the country. The five sessions planned will enable participants to begin a Children and Worship program in their congregations.
