The greatest memorial Christians participate in on a regular basis is Communion or The Lord’s Supper.
It’s easy to forget why we do things, and sometimes shrug it off by saying something like, “That’s the way it’s always been done,” as if that’s a suitable reason for doing anything.
Tradition, can, at times, get in the way of the original intention of a ritual, so I would like to refresh our memories on what our weekly “ritual” of taking Communion is all about.
Do we really understand its significance? Why do we do this on a weekly basis? Is it something we do because it’s something we are just supposed to do in church?
