Two examples with a sacramental tendency summarize this approach. One of them is the Mennonite Brethren Confession of Faith of 1902: “[I]n partaking of the Lord’s supper they may be fed with the body and blood of Christ, thus to partake of all His sufferings and his merits . . .” (Howard Loewen, One Lord, One Church, One Hope and One God (Elkhart: Institute of Mennonite Studies, 1985), 170. The other example is from the Confession of Faith in a Mennonite Perspective: “The supper re-presents the presence of the risen Christ in the church. As we partake of the communion of the bread and cup, the gathered body of believers shares in the body and blood of Christ . . . ” (Scottdale, PA: Herald, 1995), 50. Oscar Cullmann and F. J.
