The Open Table

Should we invite those not (yet) baptized to receive Holy Communion? A noticeable difference between theology and practice has developed in some areas of the church. Some parishes (and even dioceses) invite and welcome all to the Table, whether or not they are baptized. Others maintain the church’s long-standing theological position that receiving the Eucharist belongs only to the baptized. The issue has significant implications for inter-Anglican, ecumenical, and interreligious relations.
