Once I was in a Church that got a younger Pastor. It was a Church whose members were mainly ages 60 and above. He did these for communion once....he learned quickly to never do that again.

To me it was like fast food communion. Felt as though there should be a spork and wet wipe in the little package.

Why why Why would one do this? Takes too long to serve the elements separately? People might be late for their brunch reservations?

A spork and a wet wipe! HAAA!

This is an abomination unto the Lord.

Incidentally, the word verification for this comment was "ohy tov av" which seemed very Hebraic to me.

Oh! The pastor at our church got a sample of those in the mail this week, and asked I could use them. I asked if they were wine or juice. He said juice. I said I'd pass...

We used to attend a church that did something very similar; imagine the typical little plastic juice cup, with a little pocket on the side just big enough to hold a tiny unleavened morsel. I'm sorry to see that "fast food communion" is still with us. I pray everyone reading this will be blessed in receiving communion in a more traditional (and less distracting) tonight.

The body of Christ, hermetically sealed for you.

On top of all the theologically horrifying aspects of it...

I can see elderly people with arthritis not being able to open them (do they raise their hands like in Kindergarden and ask for help?
Or worse, having them squirt all over like airplane peanuts or juice boxes (do they lick their pews if they spill?)

Yikes is right.
