an interesting article that summarizes the nature of memory and then comes back to the LORD’s supper. do we “create consumers out of participants” in the LORD’s supper by focusing on receiving the LORD’s supper rather than focusing on remembering “HIS death until HE comes”? it’s a good question.
when we do the LORD’s supper as a youth ministry (which we only do when we are on mission trips or retreats and not able to receive it with the whole church family) we focus on the fact that it is a celebration. we are remembering until HE comes again. one day HE will come again and the feast will begin. we try to focus on LORD’s supper celebration toward the fact that the day of the wedding feast is fast approaching. one day we will be together forever.
