Can comments be made during the Lord’s Supper?


Is it right for a brother officiating the Lord's Supper to make comments while the bread and the fruit of the vine are being passed? Some brethren hold the view that at such times congregations should be silent.


This would be a matter for the local congregation to decide. There are few details about how the Lord's Supper is to be conducted. The main consideration is that it is to be done in a manner worthy of the death of our Savior. "Therefore whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord" (I Corinthians 11:27). The reading of Scripture about his death or comments that help everyone to focus on what is being done are not wrong. However, if some find those same comments distracting, then consideration should be given to them.
