If you don't have a minister, you can't have the Lord's Supper. I don't see how we lower the importance of the prescribed elements versus any other factors that we would agree mean one has to wait till those are in place to have the Lord's Supper.I understand the concern with going "off script" when it comes to commands and prescriptions. However, this still doesn't resolve the issue for the third world country where the elements may not be obtainable. Not observing the Lord's supper would also be a sin for a Christian church. So, what is the answer for those brothers and sisters?
