Baptists on Dancing & Communion Wednesday, Apr 9 2008 

But not at the same time! ; )

So, finally for the night, check out this article from Baptist Nathan Finn, and the Communion (Lord’s Supper in Baptist parlance, which I grew up with) meditation by Baptist minister Steve Weaver he links to. I appreciate the attention given to Communion (Christian church parlance, which I’m now more used to) in these posts. Communion is a weekly part of services at Christian churches/churches of Christ. It was strange to me at first, but I quickly came to appreciate it. No matter the sermon topic, part of every single Sunday is spent focused on what Christ did for me and my utter unworthiness of it. After seeing Passion — and seeing a depiction of what Christ endured — I was often brought to tears during Communion. I miss that weekly focus now that I’ve moved and am in a Baptist church again.

And on a lighter note, check out this article capturing some of the history of the Baptists-don’t-dance issue.
