This past Sunday we probably spent 10-15 minutes on talking about the bread/body and the same for the cup/blood of the new covenant. The Lord's Supper is extremely important to me. It has been ever since I can remember. I am always wanting us to spend more of ourselves on its significance. I would rather it be a table communion with expressions of joy, like John Mark Hicks writes about in his book Come To The Table, than a solemn funeral service that resembles more of the altar. And my feeling is that the more we take Sundays simply to focus on the Lord's Supper only the more we can find that joy in its meaning.
What does your church do to recognize the Lord's Supper? Has it become too routine or neglected? What significance do you find in the Lord's Supper? Do you prefer the table or the altar? How has your church creatively brought meaning to the Lord's Supper?
Jesus said, "Do this in remembrance of me" And so we remember him. Although we think about his death we remember a savior who rose from the dead! Hallelujah!!
