Let the Children come to CommunionPhelim McIntyre, via The Good Book Stall
The issue of children and communion is a contentious one and both sides need to be treated fairly and courteously. The problem is that in trying, this book does not do so. Let The Children Come To Communion sets out to be a resource for those who wish to open the Communion table to children. Instead it is a reiteration of the history, with interviews from the advocates for children taking communion. It does not tackle practical day to day issues of the Sunday School missing out on the Eucharistic prayers but coming in and joining the rest of the Church during the actual giving out of the bread and wine, thereby missing any form of preparation. Neither is there any real tackling of the issue of Confirmation. Do we follow the Roman Catholic practice of first communion and a later confirmation or what? The Church of England is also attracting many people who believe in baptism of believers not of infants. There is no mention of how children being allowed to take communion works in the light of this belief. Even so Let The Children Come To Communion is a brave attempt to tackle an issue that is often overlooked. Further work and discussion is needed on this issue, and Stephen Lake should be commended for being brave enough to start the process.
