Leaders: Karen Ware Jackson and Heather Roth Johnson
Join Heather Johnson and Karen Ware Jackson as they explore different ways to involve the congregation in God's Word in worship. We'll share some of our favorite work as well as walk through best practices for getting people excited without freaking them out (at least, not too much).
Karen Ware Jackson has been using interactive preaching to create engaging worship in both traditional and contemporary/alternative styles for over 10 years. As part of a clergy-couple with two school age-kids, Sunday mornings can be particularly wild in the Jackson household, but always full of love. She is the co-editor of "When Kids Ask Hard Questions: Faith Filled Responses for Tough Topics" out October 8 from Chalice Press, and writes about parenting and engaging all ages in worship at www.karenwarejackson.com.
Heather Roth Johnson is Pastor for Faith Formation and Evangelism Specialist at St. John's Lutheran Church in Lakeville, Minnesota. She is a sister of three, mom of two, wife of one, and a blogger at storyboardingchurch.wordpress.com.This webinar is available free to members of the Southern New England conferences through a partnership with Practical Resources for Churches.
