An excellent question and observation

re communion in the from a young Wesleyan theologian and UMC elder:

"Second, the well-intentioned move to permit online communion actually does the opposite of what is intended. Will communion come to have greater value within the church by celebrating online? Or will it be further trivialized?

"Part of what has surprised me about this whole conversation is that I have experienced United Methodism as generally fairly disinterested in communion. I know there are exceptions. But I think the sad truth is that few UM churches with ordained elders see communion as absolutely essential to the church’s ministry." https://vitalpiety.com/2020/04/01/brief-thoughts-on-online-communion-and-resources-for-a-better-way/

All you had to do was state your views

The commentary on those who disagree with you was totally unnecessary: "crotchety theologians waving their orthodoxy around." My problem with progressives has never been what you believe about anything. It has always been how you marginalize those who simply disagree with you just because they perceive things differently than you. If that is "progress", then I don't want any part of it.
