It would be interesting to know how different local churches administer Communion and why. Our church has no written policy, but do not deny communion to anyone in attendance. Tom and I go to the same church, but he believes in closed, and I tend to agree with open. We agree with most other issues. Neither of us would make this a test of fellowship, nor would either leave the church if the local body ever decided to adopt a policy one way or the other. Tom is a very close brother in Christ, and have the utmost respect for his strong Christian beliefs.
