Michael Bird on the Eucharist

It is genuinely sad that this meal, which is meant to be a sign of unity within the church, has been a point of fierce and enduring divisions. It has separated Catholics and Protestants from each other. It has also separated Lutheran, Free, and Reformed churches from each other as well.

Indeed… and let me add again, that I fully enjoy the open table of the United Methodist Church.

I’m looking forward to this series by Dr. Bird.
