It’s April, and at least in my part of the world, the weather is finally starting to feel like Spring. Spring is a time of new beginnings; plants sprout, flowers bloom, and here on Eschewmenical we’re about to relaunch as well.
This month we’re looking back to the recently passed Easter holiday and remembering the institution that our Lord gave us right before his death. The words often spoken during this time give us the story from Paul:
The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, 24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.” 25 In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” 26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes. (1 Corinthians 11:23b-26).
In the spirit of Eschewmenicism, our authors will be giving us the lowdown on the differences between their denomination’s celebration of the communion (maybe even including what to call this sacred meal). How the church views its sacramental nature, and even how it’s properly administered.
Our Authors for the month:
- 4/9 (or ASAP) David Stratton
- 4/15 Peter Turner
- 4/22 JamesT
- 4/29 SSumner
There are a lot of controversial beliefs and practices surrounding the Lord’s Supper (or the Mass). And we’re here to explore them. This is Eschewmenical!
