New Lutheran Quote of the Day
The Lutheran Church today, in maintaining the practice of close Communion, witnesses to the corporate character of Christ's body and to the requirement that the member examine his life. It sees a danger in precipitously conferring the privileges of fellowship upon those who are as yet unaware of the responsibilities of that fellowship. -- Ernest Koenker, *Worship in Word and Sacrament* p. 42.
