In the year 2000 I moved to the US from Germany and I have noticed a difference in the way the Lord's Supper is kept. Christians here drink it in separate little cups and separate little wafers for each church member. I am used to having one bread being passed around and you take off a piece or one cup passed around from which everone drinks. Why is that? I mean before I got saved I grew up in a Catholic area and they take these wafers for everybody during mass. Then after salvation I was used to seeing the one bread (typefying one body of Christ). At this Baptist church here in Tennessee I was appalled at first to see the return of little wafers. Since there are so many strict rules by the health department, I was wondering if taking the Lord's Supper from one bread and one cup would be a concern for authorities (germs, bacteria, infections ...) How do you keep the Lord's Supper and how often? So many churches have it only once a year and this might be my work Sunday, so I miss it and have to take it the next year. Jesus said "This do in my remembrance." If you remember something so important only once a year, then we might get very forgetful and indifferent. A precious memory comes back to our mind often and is remembered frequently. But the loving sacrifice of the Son of God is only remembered once a year? Why? Thanks for your replies.
