Re: [liturgy-l] Re: Receiving Communion
- It was the Presbyterian custom to refer to Sunday as the Sabbath - probably shot form for 'sabbath of the new law'. I understand that in Scotland this is still the case.

While I am sure it violates thew word of the command, I am not so sure
about the spirit. It is still using the common cup to share the
Sacrament, people are still consuming the blood of Christ from the
consecrated cup, and so I'd prefer Intinction to individual cups. It also
is less messy than the other alternative, which is to make individual cups
avaliable and use a pouring chalice to commune the people. I just see
visions of Luther lapping up the Precious Blood when I hear about those
