Part of the fun of church planting is figuring out what our church will look like a do. John and I have discussed, however briefly, whether we will celebrate the Lord’s Supper monthly or weekly. My home church in Windsor (Grace) does it weekly with great profit. The standard Baptist practice in Canada seems to be monthly. The fear of weekly celebration is that it reduces to mere ritualism, where familiarity breeds contempt.
So, seeing Jim Hamilton’s guest post on Russ Moore’s blog arguing for a weekly celebration was timely. His argument is that the New Testament church seemed to “break bread” – a term for the Eucharist – every week.
