RECEPTION OF WINE AND WATER

Bob Wickizer. Please join us as we raise a glass at this festive event.
ADULT FORUM: WHY EPISCOPALIANS NEED TO CELEBRATE WINE!
Please join us Sunday, January 16 at 9:35am as The Rev. Bob Wickizer leads us in a discussion on why we Episcopalians have labored far too long under the specter of Biblical taboos cast by practitioners of the dark arts of cultic expansion. It is time for us to come out from hiding under the rock and tell the world that “It’s OK to drink wine and other spirits.” In fact, in most languages, the word “spirit” can mean something from the supernatural world like ghost, angels, or evil spirits as well as a fermented beverage that can induce varying degrees of euphoria. Come join us as we debunk a lot of the common religious nonsense about wine, beer, and alcohol in general.
