RULE No. 11: Respect the Sacramental Wine
It's no accident that alcohol is front and center in lots of religious rites. In the Roman Catholic Eucharist, wine symbolizes the transit from brutal violence to redemptive hope. Our taste for faith meets the same need as our taste for fume blanc—our longing for linkage. The word "religion" is derived from the Latin religare , meaning "to tie or fasten." (Care to tie one on?) And just as we sing those hymns in search of common ground, we share a drink to find a way across the space between us.
