All denominations have rules regarding the Lord’s Supper. Pastor Foley challenges us to think about how those rules would hold up in a place like North Korea. In North Korea, the Lord’s Supper manages to pass the boundaries that human beings and repressive structures have erected. For North Korean Christians, the Lord’s Supper reminds them that Jesus Christ can go to places where they cannot and connect them in worship to people whose faces they may never see in this lifetime.
