  • If you are a believer is part of their ritual, I did it and my kids did it, but it was more of a family tradition than faith.

  • Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to His disciples, saying, 'Take and eat; this is My body.' Then He took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, 'Drink from it, all of you. This is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it anew with you in My Father's kingdom (Matthew 26:29)

  • communion, along with 'washing the saints feet', is a covenant with Christ, a remembrance of His time on the cross, and for me, an act of servitude towards my fellow brothers/sisters of the church, or the Body of Christ.

  • I believe its a symbol to remember Jesus and what he did. I would say, then, that one should partake if one believes in him and his message and our obligation to live according to his teachings.

  • "For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup you proclaim the Lord's death until He comes" I Cor. 11:26. Luke 22: 19 " this in remembrance of me" We take part as the aspostles did and remember the sacrafice that Jesus made for us.
