Who said this? “…the central reality in a New Testament understanding of the Lord’s Supper is that the risen Christ, alive and present in the Spirit, continues to meet his people in joyful fellowship at the table. Jesus Christ is really present in the celebration of the Lord’s Supper, not on the table, circumscribed by the elements, but at the table, as the true minister and celebrant, continuing to enjoy fellowship with his disciples as he did during his earthly ministry.”
