From the editorial:
What kind of event is it: sign, corporate symbol, sacrament, ordinance, ceremony, ritual? What really happens in the event? What occasions or contexts are appropriate for enacting the event? Who is welcome to participate? What preparatory activities are proper: self-examination, corporate sharing or reconciliation, table fellowship? How should the physical dynamics be orchestrated: rows, queue toward a table, circles around tables, common cup, individual cups? When and how often is it best celebrated? Finally, what should we call it: Communion, the Eucharist, the Lord’s Supper, the Agapé. This issue of Vision addresses a number, although not all, of these persistent questions.
