In our next stop on the journey of exploring Shirley Erena Murray's imagery in "A Place at the Table," we reflect on the notion of "for young and for old, a place at the table ... the right to belong."
We have assembled a multitude of voices who speak of different facets of intergenerational ministry embracing many worship arts: choral music, visuals, handbells, and rap music, to name a few. They and others mae the case for bringing generations together, eliminating the segregation of ages that so frequently happens in our age of specialization.
We invited our membership to share from their experience what they are doing to bring multi-generations together in their worship setting.
We hope you'll find education, resources and ideas in abundance in this issue, and will be inspired, perhaps, by Andrea Baxter's observation that "when it comes to worship ... intentional inclusion of all generations can be a rich and beautiful reflection of God's diverse and gifted creation."
Indeed, may we strive to be "creators of justice," seeking "for young and for old, a place at the table ... the right to belong." May God delight in our worship ministries!

Do you love to write? Have an idea for an article that would interest readers of WorshipArts? The WorshipArts Editorial Committee actively seeks a variety of articles and reviews in music areas (choral for all ages, piano/organ, instrumental, handbells), arts areas (dance, drama, visuals), and worship areas (preaching, contemporary worship, spiritual formation, worship planning, liturgy). WorshipArts publishes six times each year and deadlines are the 15th of the month, two months prior to publication date.
