Let’s start by saying that I’m a 29-year-old male from Oregon and convert. I’ve currently been having problems with communion. I thought this might be an isolated incident. But I am realizing quickly that it is not.
I recently attended a protestant church with the girl I’ve been seeing. After attending several times, this week they did communion. I respectfully pasted and then was quickly admonish by the girl and her family after the service.
I think what it really set everybody off was that I called it symbolism. I told him that I understand why they do it but I do it for a different reason.
After more attacks I might have said that if I wanted Grape juice and crackers 7-Eleven was down the street and I prefer my crackers with cheese on them. Needless to say their host is unconsecrated I felt it would be wrong and Is respectful to them and God to take part.
So I guess my question is what is the best way to handle this in the future? Did I handle this as poorly as it seems?
