Methodism, Day 3

We discussed about Methodist worship and liturgy today. And I found out that John Wesley had several thoughts that didn't make it into practice with the Methodists, at least not today - one of which is the "open table" at Holy Communion. Wesley believed that the sacrament should be open even to those seeking God: why should they be refused if the elements and the experience may possibly be a means of converting grace? I am all for it, except with an "open table" comes more responsibilities on the part of the celebrant.
