Recently our church started included a "Passing of the Peace of Christ" in our worship service. We are instructed to say something along the lines of "may the peace of Christ be with you" to those sitting around us. I had never heard or seen of this before, but I found some links such as Passing the Peace | Reformed Worship and http://cardiphonia.files.wordpress.com/2009/08/passing-the-peace-of-christ_ctk.pdf Does anyone's church use this practice? Is it permissible in the worship service? Is it Biblical. I don't feel right telling someone that I don't know (who may or may not be a Christian) that the peace of Christ may be with them.
