yes - marvelous refreshing, holy - but of course

under canon law and my Bishop





OK as a Salvationist not the best person to join a conversation on Eucharist in some people's eyes, but didn't Jesus say that He came to fulfil the Law? I always considered, when I worked for the Anglican Communion, that it was therefore strange that the Church brought in a new Law that seems almost as bad as that adhered to by the Pharisees!

I suspect that if Jesus was to come today He would be reinterpreting Canon Law by taking the Eucharist back to the meal table, just like He reinterpreted the Law of Moses during His ministry!


Isn't the "Holy Communion" about our cummune with God? A personal intimate sharing of our soul with our Maker?If the above prayer helps us attain that closeness, why object?.As Jesus said,Mark:2,ver:27 " The sabbath was made for man and not man for sabbath". The same applies for canon law as well doesn't it?.

As Jesus so aptly put. Matthew:13,ver:52." Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old".Wouldn't it please the Lord more, that His disciples are finding new expressions to get closer to Him?.

I come from a staunch catholic background, but one of the teachings always bothered me. Is how we pray to the different saints to bring our petitions before God.Is that not against the first and foremost commandment?. When asked how to pray, our Lord Jesus gave us " Our Lord's Prayer" so why are we being taught different?

These words made my heart race. Amazing. Holy. Such depth. Is the full service available somewhere? I would love to read it all.
