I would like to know if you could point out in the WRITINGS (if it is out there)any information on the proper or correct way to administer the Lord's Supper.
Dear Brother and Sister ___________,
Thank you for contacting the Ellen G. White Estate. You have asked an interesting question. Unfortunately, I know of no place in Mrs. White's writings where she deals with it, nor did my search in the topical index on the CD-ROM bring up anything of this kind. Her concerns had more to do with the believer's preparation for the service and willing participation in it. I did not find where she dealt with the "order of service" issues which I think you are asking about. She seems to have taken the service as it was customarily observed among Adventists, including the foot washing, as fulfilling the Lord's command.
If you would like to read more of what Mrs. White wrote on the subject, there are two chapters in The Desire of Ages which are rich in spiritual material: chapters 71 and 72, "A Servant of Servants," and "'In Remembrance of Me.'" You might also want to look at the collection of statements in Evangelism, pp. 273-278. For a wider look at her statements on the issue, see the 3-volume Index to Mrs. White's published writings, under the heading "Lord's Supper." You can also check the supplemental volume published in the early 1990s for references in books released after 1960. Even just reading down the summary entries in the index provides a pretty good overview. If you have the new edition of the Ellen G. White CD-ROM, you have the index volumes right there on your computer, with point-and-click access to the pages that the index references.
I hope this is helpful. Thank you for writing, and God bless.
