WHEN THE BISHOP COMES TO VISIT: AN ACTIVITY BOOK FOR ALL AGES by BROOK PACKARD
DescriptionBROOK H. PACKARD Illustrated by BARBARA DESROSIERS For use by churches during a bishop's visitations - A resource guide for educators, parents, and families - For audiences who have enjoyed Anne Kitch's "What We Do in Church" books A bishop comes to visit a congregation for many reasons--a parish celebration, baptism, confirmation, or a pastoral visit. With black and white illustrations, this interactive book for children and families describes the ministry of a bishop, including symbols and apparel, in preparation for the visit and worship. Confirmands will find this new book particularly helpful as it walks them through the liturgy of Confirmation. During the actual Confirmation rite, children will have a guide to follow along during the service, making this book serve multiple purposes for young and old alike. Brook Packard is a musician, singer, composer and educator. She has worked in Episcopal churches as a volunteer or paid staff member for more than 20 years. Married to the Rt. Rev. George Packard, former Episcopal bishop suffragan for armed services and federal ministries, she traveled with him extensively for confirmations, conferences, General Convention and House of Bishop's meetings. Many of those travels led her to church experiences that differed from the typical parochial model, yet were vibrant examples of communities of faith.
