The Eucharist Flashmob – Awesome, but the #UMC could do a better one

No, I’m not trying to start a religious war… but you know…. we do have an open table…

:)

Anyway, great stuff!

    How would the UMC have done it better?

    Can you explain? I don’t know what you mean.

    1. The UMC allows all to partake of the Communion table. Rome only allows Catholics.

        I understand that, but how does that fact mean that you’d do the Eucharist Flashmob event better?

        1. um, because we could invite everyone, Methodists, Catholics, others, to the Table.

            I guess I don’t understand how that would make much of a difference to a public display of eucharistic adoration.

    But to receive the body, blood, soul, and divinity of Christ – now that is heaven!

    Joel, forgive my ignorance, does UMC stand for United Methodist Church, and if so, so they have Eucharistic adoration like Roman Catholics do?

    1. It does stand for the United Methodist Church, and as a whole, it does not have adoration, although I wouldn’t be too opposed to it, I reckon.

        You couldn’t have a flash mob without the Real Presence and adoration :o)
