Communion, The Lord's Supper Discussion
Communion or the Lord's Supper is my favorite part of worship on Sunday's. It is a time that I reflect on my relationship with Christ, His love, sacrifice and life He gives through resurrection. I hunger for it. There is something that gives me nurishment, spiritual nourishment, strength in my faith when I partake of it with other believers. How about you? How does this act of participational worship help your faith? Do you long for it? I have been to some churches that seem to rush through it, not giving it the attention and thought needed. I have also been to churches that cherish it, spend much of or all of the service in the act. I have even heard of some churches having meals when taking it. Can we as believers neglect it? If so how? Can we argue over the mechanics of it that it looses all purpose and meaning? How often does your church take it? Does it matter how often it is taken? What does your church do to give it purpose and meaning to those partaking? What can we as believers do to give it more meaning when we participate? How should the believers attitude be when partaking and does that matter? How?
