Across the country, our congregations are filling up with a new generation of Unitarian Universalists: children. Our congregations are reaching out to families as a whole. It's not enough, in these times, to provide stimulating sermons for adults and (in some distant wing of the church) solid religious education for their young ones. Rather, families need and deserve shared worship that they can experience together, take home, talk about and learn from.-from the Introduction

These multigenerational worship services draw from folk tales, children's literature and everyday living. Hewitt offers new ways to celebrate the beginning of the church year, Christmas, coming of age and Earth Day, as well as services for any time, to engage children through elders. Each service is a whole body experience, inviting members to participate and engage the mind, heart and spirit. These fully scripted services include recommended hymns, readings and props plus quick, at-a-glance descriptions that rate each service based on the preparation time required.

Praise for Story, Song and Spirit

"Hewitt understands the need for careful and thorough preparation for worship which also leaves room for the spirit in the moment. Her thorough directions on props, stage directions, transitions, and liturgical elements make all the difference in seeing these stories fully integrated into satisfying and creative worship services for all ages."-Wayne Arnason, co-author, Worship That Works

"Woven together with a strong sense of liturgical rhythm, Hewitt brings together every element that today's multigenerational UU community needs to offer engaged and spirited worship." -Greg Ward, minister, Unitarian Universalist Church of the Monterey Peninsula
