Came across this article by Ray Van Neste advocating weekly observance of the Supper (HT: Scott Aniol).
The most frequent argument against a weekly observance that I hear is that it will make the practice rote and mindless. While a (typically) monthly observance does highlight the Supper in a certain way, Van Neste is absolutely correct in noting that we do not hold the same mentality when it comes to biblical preaching, singing, or prayer. I suspect that part of the issue is that for each of those three categories, there is a good deal of potential variety: one can preach an endless variety of messages on various passages and topics, we have a relatively wide range of potential songs, and the subject of prayer is inexhaustible. The observance of the Lord’s Supper, on the other hand, is fairly straightforward with limited variation. This is not a problem with the Supper, but with our media-saturated generation, which demands stimulating variety at any cost. It is, however, the very repetition which makes the practice effective and drives home its truth with the weight of long observance.
