“Wholly symbolic” communion?

In the joint Unitarian and Universalist 1937 Hymns of the Spirit the shorter communion service has a provision where “there is to be no distribution of the elements” “the communion being wholly symbolic.” I’ve never seen this ever done myself; has anyone?

  1. Scott,
    I modified the service a little bit and did it as a Programmed service at ESR. It went over well, and it gave the seminary community a chance to talk about why traditionally Quakers do not have communion with elements.
