      Gerry,
       
      Perhaps you will be able to answer this. Now, I agree with fencing the table and session controlled communion, and in an age when the standards of the church are more distinct from other denominations and we do not have similar or duplicate denominations as we do now [take the RPCNA, RPCS, and the RPCI for example] I agree with close communion.
       
      What I do not understand is, if I am reading recent posts rightly, how can an adult be interviewed and admitted to membership in the RPNA but that same adult membership not also be communicant membership?
       
      I was under the impression that the standards for adult admission to the membership of the church were the same as those for communion.
