I was raised in a Protestant church (Conference Baptist) that offered Communion once a month.
To us, the communion was a memorial service. It was not a happy time, it was a time to remember Jesus’s death, like the Bible says. IOW, like a funeral, even with the “pallbearers” staying in perfect step as they brought the matzo and grape juice down the aisle.
When you think about it, why would you want to go to funeral often? Not exactly a way to attract people to come to your church, especially when the “church down the road” was offering a rock concert, a Gospel singspiration, or a Top That Testimony Time.
I don’t mean this to sound harsh. It’s what I grew up with, everyone.
