Re: US Thanksgiving

Soooo... On thanksgiving- I enjoyed the video overall. Then again, I enjoy US Thanksgiving in the way we currently celebrate it, much more than I do "Christmas". It's relatively free of commercialism compared to the next holiday, it's more family-oriented, simple, and (in my opinion) genui...

Re: The Church of my Dreams

Sorry for joining this ballgame a little late, but I just haven't been on here much lately. 1. Evangelism/ Growth: A church that has no "new" members to show is sick, whether those in it think so or not. It is failing in a critical area spelled out by the Lord in the great commission. The ...

Re: Hymn Share

Wayfarin' Stranger I’m just a poor wayfaring stranger, I’m trav’ling through this world of woe; There is no sickness, toil, nor danger, In that bright world to which I go. I’m going there to see my father, I’m going there no more to roam; I’m just a going over Jordan, I’m just a going over home. I ...

Re: Frequency of Communion

There’s always an exception for wine purchased for religious purposes. In Ohio, there is a special liquour licence for selling wine for this exact purpose, including being exempt from the 3-tier system. (Churches that observe the Eucharist often will go through a lot of wine and can get it much che...

Re: Frequency of Communion

One of the things I appreciate about the Lutheran church that I attend (no I am not an infant baptizer...) is the fact that they use real wine. The bitter aftertaste reminds me that it was a bitter cup that Jesus drank for me. Grape juice (which I like to drink) is too sweet to fill the meaning for...

Re: Frequency of Communion

Sounds like a service I would really enjoy. Perhaps someday I can visit one. Is this a closed or open communion church ? Open. "This is God's table, and it is open to all who seek it" is the typical rhetoric prior to the Supper by the pastor. Do note, overall DOC is COCs more liberal sist...

Re: Frequency of Communion

My church (and I'm sure others that practice weekly communion) would agree. The elders in my congregation will cite "..in remembrance of me" as the reason for weekly communion. We don't remember Jesus and his deeds just one service a year, it's every time. This also ensures that the birth...

Re: Frequency of Communion

But if the referral in scripture 'to break bread' means 'to celebrate the Lord's Supper' then a text like Acts 20:7 would suggest this practise was weekly. On the first day of the week, when we were gathered together to break bread, Paul talked with them, intending to depart on the next day, and he...

Re: Frequency of Communion

Disciples of Christ churches take communion weekly. They believe it is something to be remembered and done every time the congregation is assembled. So, if Christmas is on Sunday, we have the Supper even then. The SBC church I was raised in (and most here) take communion 2 times a year. Far too infr...
