SEATTLE (AP) -- Though many Protestants celebrate Communion monthly or quarterly, a study committee of the United Methodist Church has endorsed weekly observance.
The committee is developing a comprehensive paper on the theology and practice of Communion for the 2004 General Conference of the denomination.
The committee said weekly practice would enrich worship and fit the practice of Methodist founder John Wesley, though it does not plan to seek legislation mandating it, United Methodist News Service reported.
