Why Welcome Children to Communion

This essay points out that children were not always excluded from the table, and are not excluded today in all Christian traditions. It traces the reformed tradition’s development of the practice of excluding children. The article then advances several theological themes that challenge current reformed practice, and offers guidelines for worship planners and leaders. The article, written by Syd Hielema, professor of theology and youth ministry at Dordt College and advisor to the Christian Reformed Church’s Children and Youth Ministry Council, includes discussion questions and resources and can be found on the website of the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship.
