    Two rare exceptions to open communion in Churches of Christ were the parents of Pat Boone who were refused communion at the Nashville congregation where they had been members until being disfellowshipped for their support of the charismatic beliefs of their son. For quite some time they would come in after the service began, sit in the back and leave before it was over.

    Another exception are the Old Paths Churches of Christ in Great Britain. They practice closed communion. Adamantly pacifist, some were known to refuse communion during WW2 to American servicemen.

    I was aware of the sad case of Pat Boone’s parents but not the Old Paths practices. Thanks.
