BENTLEY, Wessel. The reconciliatory role of Holy Communion in the Methodist tradition. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2011, vol.32, n.2, pp.1-6. ISSN 2074-7705.

Violence is an instrument of segregation, whether it manifests physically, emotionally, verbally or by any other means. Can the church be an instrument of reconciliation where people have been divided through violence? This article explores the reconciliatory role of the Sacrament of Holy Communion in the Methodist tradition, which has as a Christian denomination, experienced many threats of division in its history. Holy Communion, it is argued, is the one place where people, who may find every reason not to be together, are invited to share in an event which unites them.
