Sue Edwards's comment on 2014-06-02 09:20:12:
I believe that when God says "as often as you eat... ", he means Every Time you eat and drink. Therefore, rather than communion being a ceremony performed once a week or once a month in the church, when all come together to eat and drink the bread and wine, which The Word prohibits, vs 20 22 it is a private appreciation of and thanks giving for the sacrificial death of Jesus.
