Holy Communion

What happens at the Communion Table is rich and full of mystery. As people try to sort through the various explanations – Transubstantiation, Consubstantiation, Real Presence, Zwingli Memorialism, and more – they sometimes miss a simple but powerful truth: the Lord’s Supper is a covenant meal. First century participants would certainly have understood that, but it is all too easy for us to miss it. The covenant aspect of Holy Communion is consistent with any of traditional views but one can hold those views without regard for the meal’s covenant roots.

Here is teaching that might help make sense of what we do when we come to the Lord’s table. Just click on this link http://lockwoodchurch.org/media  and then click the sermon titled The Resistance.
