"Do this in remembrance of me" means...

(Rev. Phua Chee Seng, Moderator of Singapore Presbyterian Synod preparing the Eucharist at Trinity Theological College's chapel during the 61st Thanksgiving service)

"...the eucharist is not the memorial of past meals with Jesus but the reality of contemporary response to his hospitality – a hospitality once and for all established as indestructible by the cross and the resurrection, so that what was done in the ministry of Jesus in Galilee and Jerusalem is done constantly in the history of the Church."


This morning, I had the honor to serve the Eucharist in Presbyterian-style to John Chew, the Archbishop of Anglican South East Asia. Look forward for the honor to serve Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury and Primate of All England. Today South East Asia, Tomorrow Canterbury.

Did they have to go on their knees to receive the elements? :)

Hi Kenny,

You mean "they" as in John Chew and TTC's principal?

If so, no la.. They sat there while I served them. Didn't even dare to lift my head when they picked up the bread and cup from my plate!

Hi reasonable, really? No special treatment to them?? But i guess it's the same if they are in a high-church tradition of the anglican.
