“The Blessings of Weekly Communion” – Wieting
A great new book. Ryan Fouts receives the "First Blog Notice" award for identifying the availability of this book. I’ve been reading it this week at home in the evenings and I have to say that it is really fantastic. It offers an extremely helpful explanation of why the historical Lutheran practice of offering the Lord’s Supper at each weekly Divine Service turned into the situation by 1920 whereby it was offered only four times a year! I love this thought from the book. When the church offers the Sacrament at every Divine Service it is not forcing anyone to receive it, but it is also not forcing anyone to *not* receive it. Rough paraphrase, not as well said as the book says it, but…you get the point.
