3GT Episode 23: Who May Come to the Lord’s Table?

The 3GTers discuss qualifications for communing in the church, when/if children may participate (paedocommunion), and church membership in an age where belonging to Sam’s Club seems more important.

    How about memory-challenged adults? For example, Grandma has been a devout and faithful follower of Jesus for 70-plus years, attends worship regularly, has a sweet, loving spirit, desires to commune, but has almost no short-term memory. How can the session discern if Grandma can discern the Body and Blood of the Lord? Is that the controlling issue?
    Our practice has the appearance of the Baptist practice – anyone in this condition is invited to commune.

      Great question! We will pick it up on a Rewind section in a future episode!

    I appreciate the podcast. Thanks for the work. Would really like it if you included a download link so I can save the audio file and listen offline.
