Another short review by Fr Jonathan Clark, Chair of Affirming Catholicism
It’s always a relief for a parish priest to find that someone else has done all the hard work and sorted out those tricky problems – like finding a fresh idea for a Christingle service. Simon Rundell’s book does all of that, but it should come with a bit of a health warning – ‘This book may provoke creativity’. Far more than just a book of handy tips, the commentary and reflection which surrounds the practical examples should provoke anyone leading worship with children to let their own imagination off the rein. Fr Simon is well entrenched in the Catholic tradition, but is not defensive of it, nor afraid to play with it, and so he provides us with an invitation into a living tradition, a place where we can discover the Holy Spirit at work for today’s church.
