But what if the blue is really church people talking bad about beer? Or the red is really beer drinkers talking bad about church? Or Mark Driscoll at Mars Hill talking in church about how to make beer?
What about churches that meet in bars?
Hmmm. In our yearly brothers’ retreat in Germany we close each day with beer and fellowship – not that one is forced to drink that stuff, but it is much more in line with life in Europe that in the U.S. In our house church during the meal we usually empty the bottle of wine from which we took the Cup of Blessing. Mhm – fermented “Fruit of the Vine” – well, it’s just half a glass for those who like it.
This post cries out for that classic joke:
Q: “Why should you always take two Baptists with you when you go fishing?”
A: “Because if you just take one, he’ll drink all your beer.”
Where ever there are four methodists there is a fifth. I remember going to church weddings in other countries and beer plus a lot of other libations were all they served. I was reluctant but they told me it was the custom and it would be offensive not to partake. So here is to not offending anyone at a church weeding. Also had a girlfriend that was catholic in high school. They actually drank in the church building!
