I came (but currently going through the inquirer's class of a reformed church) from a non-denominational church who just started a consistent celebration of the Lord's Supper early last year. The church also encourages a celebration of the Lord's Supper between members administered or facilitated by anyone as long as the person is a professing Christian or at least a small group/discipleship group leader in which I have facilitated and participated in before I was introduced to the reformed tradition. In the reformed tradition, at least with what I have learned (please do correct my understanding if they are wrong), the Lord's Supper is to be administered by the minister of the Word, administered together with the preaching of the Word, in the context of the congregation, during the Lord's Day. My question is, is it sinful to facilitate or celebrate the breaking of the bread with the only minimum requirement met is the reading and exposition of the Word within a group of believers? Or can we celebrate the breaking of the bread with at least meeting the requirement that: 1. Participation of professing Christians only 2. Reading and exposition of the Word Or when we say "breaking of bread," do we mean the Lord's Supper or are they different with the essence remaining the same? Or is the only requirement to "do this in remembrance of me"? I ask because some of my friends, while aware of the reformed tradition, are still part of the said church and often times still facilitate and want to have the breaking of bread among us. I'm thinking whether I should participate when it happens. Or if it is wrong or sinful, how should one respond? Do you think this falls under liberty as well? I am already anticipating rhetorical questions like "Do those churches who adhere to the NPW sin?" or "Am I sinning if I preach at church, though not during the Lord's Day, even if I am not an ordained minister of the Word?" Or "Am I sinning if I attend a church service on a Saturday instead of Sunday?" I'd like to know your thoughts. Thanks in advance for accommodating my pre-sleeping thoughts (apologies for the delay in response as it is night time here in the Philippines).
