Michael went to be with the Lord on February 14, 2015. He considered this his favorite hangout. I know he would have wanted to leave you an explanation for his lack of activity on this site.

Software Developer, part-time pastor, and I raise chickens. Who can't love a chicken?

For Christianity.stackexchange.com, my religious background:

  • Grew up in a Protestant, evangelical, nondenominational "Bible Church" (-1990)
  • earned a M.Div at a Baptist Seminary (2008) and pastored a very small Baptist church (2004 - 2008)
  • Served in an Episcopal Church, and yes I did that site. (2008 - 2013)
  • Back to a Baptist church that has a true passion for breaking down the barriers of church so as to focus on the original mission of the church - namely to bring Jesus to a dying world.

(Just updated the question). Your most illustrative answers will be catholic, because Protestant memorialists would say "it's just a symbol" and therefore it doesn't matter how it's done.

It will of of course depend on your theology of sacrements. I think that it should be clarified that this question is for sacramentaliats only.

FYI, The Council of Jamnia is a highly discredited idea nowadays. Very little evidence that it ever existed
