David thanks for the quote from brother Barclay...I acquired that text a
long time ago and have read it a number of times. It is a well researched
volume on the history of the "Lord's Supper" and a worthy addition to
anyone's Christian library. If we were to do the Lord's Table as they did
it in the first century "assemblies" we would enjoy a meal together and not
just have a "Lord's snack" like you find in virtually every 20th century
