There’s so much wrong with that. The entire idea of communion is community and twitter is not any more a real community than getting a text from a mate is intimacy.
Are there no theologians in the entire church there who will tell them that they’re doing something not only absurd, but wicked?
In a modern spin on Christianity’s most sacred rite, worshippers are being invited to break bread and drink wine or juice in front of their computers as they follow the service online. Churches usually require a priest to take the Eucharist, but the Rev Tim Ross, a Methodist minister, will send out a prayer in a series of Tweets – messages of up to 140 characters – to users of Twitter.
May I say to Rev Ross- you, good sir, are defacing communion in a way that not even Satan could manage. Do you really not understand what communion is? Such ‘communion’ is neither communion nor Christian- it’s just more pandering to the lazy that’s bedeviled Christianity since the beginning but more so now than ever. Seriously, just how tragically lazy are the Methodists in that Church that they can’t even manage to gather for Communion? Via James ‘the Bookman’ Spinti.
