In Australia we are thankfully / hopefully emerging from the worst of the Pandemic. We have had single digit case numbers, mostly in returning travelers and a bit escaping from hotel quarantine. Each of our 24 Bishops has managed the response in their own Diocese, and although they have no doubt had their chats there are some variance as to how things happen. Our Bishop has told us we can have a carol service so long a people don't sing. I am not sure if he imagines the Service of 9 Lessons and Meditative Pauses, and I am not sure if Silent Night is on the agenda, off the agenda or just is the agenda! We have for some time been communicated in one kind, and whilst I readily recognise the reformation principle enshrined in Article XXX, I am sufficiently OK with a doctrine of concomitance and in the face of the situation have accepted that is OK. From this Sunday however we will be communicating in both kinds using individual glasses. This I find a little more challenging and I see it as a race down the candlestick. I have only struch the practice in congregations of the reformation tradition, and a few Anglican Parishes in Sydney who see the reformation as the goal. Am I being too precious? 1 Corinthians 10:15-17 I speak as to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say. The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a sharing in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a sharing in the body of Christ? Because there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for we all partake of the one bread. I see the shared cup as a part of our Anglican Tradition, and I am not sure how I should feel about this.
