Red, Red Wine
Following up last week’s discussion on church discipline, Carl and Aimee bring up the closely related topic of the Lord’s Supper. What does church discipline tell us about the importance of church membership and the Lord’s Supper?
Should membership in a church be required in order for a person to partake in the sacrament? Do differences exist within Christian traditions and/or denominations concerning who is allowed at the table? How is the Lord’s Supper served in evangelical churches that do not offer formal church membership? The discussion ends with a reminder of the preparation essential for this solemn, yet celebratory family meal…and, a word about Carl’s ambitious aspirations for retirement.
