The Prevalence of the Individual Communion Cup.

The Prevalence of the Individual Communion Cup. Philadelphia, June 6, 1902. To the Editor: —Your recent editorial reference to the encouraging progress in the adoption of individual communion cups, among other things pertaining to church hygiene, prompts me to submit the following figures, which give an approximation of the status of the movement nearly to date: About 1500 churches, representing nearly 600,000 communicants, are now using individual cups, and would not revert to the commonly-used cup. About 70 per cent, of these churches are of the Baptist, Congregational and Presbyterian denominations, and nearly equally distributed among these three. The Christian (Disciples), Lutheran, Methodist and Reformed churches follow in about equal proportion. There are a few Protestant Episcopal, Universalist, Swedenborgian, and other scattered denominations using the cups. Almost three times as many churches now use individual cups as compared with 1898. The reform began in 1894, when hardly a score of churches were using them. By far the http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
