"Bread is one, broken for all...or is it?" : On communion, its openness and consequence (English)
Abstract [en]

This essay aims to study the Eucharist in three Protestant church traditions, based with a special interest in its openness and consequences. Are there any restrictions who can receive communion? What importance do these traditions attach to the Lord's supper; what consequences does it have? The essay is based on four documents, an ecumenical document from the World Council of Churches, and a document each from the United Methodist Church, the Church of Sweden and the Uniting Church in Sweden. The investigation concludes that the Church of Sweden is not completely consistent in its view of the Eucharist - the Eucharist is a meal for the baptized, but practice can vary. The presence of the Holy Spirit and the connection between the Eucharist and sanctification are less emphasized in the Church of Sweden, while it is stressed in the Uniting Church in Sweden and the UnitedMethodist Church. The author concludes that the communion table should be open to all who seek it. He also longs for a communion revival in his own Church community, which is The Uniting Church in Sweden.
