Consubstantiation: participation

The Lutheran concept of consubstantiation is that the presence of Christ is, "in with and under" the elements in the Lord's supper, communion or the Eucharist. The Catholic belief called transubstantiation is that the elements are transformed into Christ's blood and body. On the other side, broadly speaking, protestants believe that the elements memorialize Jesus body and blood, and the ritual brings to memory what Christ did. I personally believe that the elements stay natural but can become anointed. I believe that God's presence can come on and around the the communion table.

"Is not the cup of thanksgiving a participation in the blood of Christ?
Is not the bread we break a participation in the body of Christ?" 1 Corinthians 10:16

The word participation could also be translated communion and also means intimate fellowship.

When we participate in the Lord's supper we are communing with Christ's broken body and shed blood. When you get close to God all sorts of good things can happen.
