There is ALWAYS a worry when someone leaves the Eucharist. Jesus was very clear on that theology. It can’t be replaced with hand waving and dancing in the isles.
49: Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died.
50: This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that a man may eat of it and not die.
51: I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh."
