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.
