The Lord's Supper

I have attended a number of larger church fellowships over the years where we took communion (crackers and juice) to remember Jesus Christ, once every 4 to 6 weeks. My limited understanding as to why it was not done every gathering as the high church does was perhaps that it was a reaction to high church or the argument that goes, "if we do it every week or every time we gather, it will lose it's significance."

I don't think that commemorating Jesus blood and body's sacrifice can ever get old or tired. It seems to me that this is exactly what our hearts need to be feeding on. Something I am thinking about.
