Sign seen in a protestant churchyard in downtown Columbus:
"Saturday 5:00 Informal/ Communion"
Someone want to explain to me what, exactly, is informal about receiving Communion? (Sometimes the sign says Holy Eucharist)
I guess if you don't see it as Catholics do (that is, the actual presence of God in the Bread and Wine, which become and Body and Blood...spare me the transfiguration is a crock emails, please!), then it could be 'informal'. And we all have seen plenty of Catholics who dress as nicely for Mass as they do for an afternoon at the 'Shoe in Columbus. But at least we never go out of our way to note that informality is acceptable!
If anyone could explain to me how Communion/ Eucharist could be "informal" in any way, please let me know.
