Dr. Cindy Beth Johnson teaches at United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities, in the field of arts and theology. She invites us to help children hear how God is speaking to them by embracing visual arts to tell the stories of scripture. When children create a visual upon hearing the story of Prodigal Son, or Jesus' baptism, what is it they picture? Faith formation and visual arts seem to be a natural fit for young disciples! Listen to Dr. Johnson explain on Common Good Radio's, Faith Parenting.

Dr. Dawn Rundman offers parents and congregations a perspective on how to welcome children to worship, fellowship, and congregational life. It's about reframing the notions of who the children are as fully participating members of God's community, rather than little people we tolerate until they get older. Even toddlers and babies have something to offer in a "ministry of presence and spirit that only toddlers and babies have among us!" Please listen in on Common Good Radio Network's podcast series, Faith Parenting.
