It's easy to say communion has been the centerpiece of Christian worship for 2000 years. But for those of us who haven't come from liturgical worship background or aren't well-versed in sacramenal theology, we can't help but wonder-- politely and silently-- why it is the center. Isn't it just preference? If I feel God more during a song, isn't that more important that an old, fussy ritual of a bread and a cup?
This is one of the questions I wrestle with in the Mystery of Faith project, particularly in the book.
