James Jordan on Calvin’s Weekly Observance of the Sacraments

James Jordan summarizes the consequences of weekly communion:

Calvin desired greatly that the rite of the Lord’s Supper be present each week in worship, and that the thankfulness highlighted in worship be extended into all labor. In this way, the principles of the Kingdom would flow from worship into the highways and byways of all of life. For this reason also, Calvin produced liturgies that involved the people greatly in the performance of worship, for the performance of public worship was training for the performance of work.a
