Thanks for the comment, Lynn.

We practice the Lord's Supper in the context of a meal, much like I suspect the early Christians did. Our experience is also much more communal and conversational as opposed to introspective and meditative.

John Mark Hick's book Come to the Table has been pretty influential in my understanding and practice of the Supper.
