Who would have thought but thankful for the inclusion of those believers in Christ who couldn’t.
Offering gluten free communion is an incredible thing to do. It welcomes everyone to the Lord’s table together. It includes those with food allergies (Celiac Disease, etc) in the joyful celebration of the Lord’s supper. It says to a congregation, “We are here together. Old and young, male and female, rich and poor, those who can eat wheat and those who can’t.”
God actually warns us about taking communion without considering what it means and why we’re doing it. The intent is not for us to mindlessly perform a ritual but to intentionally set aside time to remember what Jesus has done and why He did it.
Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord. Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself. That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some have died. But if we judged ourselves truly, we would not be judged. (1 Corinthians 11:27-31)
