Communion at Home
During Holy Communion earlier this week, while on a visitation, the person I met with inquired about the wine I had used during our home service. He was a little surprised since it didn’t taste like the port wine we use in church.
It wasn’t a surprise when I told him I had filled up my communion kit with a wine I had at home. Someone I know brought over a particular wine she likes. It was in the refrigerator that morning when I was preparing to go over to church to “fill up” my kit. Instead, I decided to use the wine I had at home.
3 Blind Moose Cabernet Sauvignon.
It is an inexpensive wine – I think it came in around $7 or 8. It is relatively full-bodied and doesn’t leave a heavy aftertaste in your mouth. I read a review that said it had flavors of chocolate, plum, and berries. Me? It just tasted good.
This label is one of favorites, though I am partial to their merlot (I like heavier-tasting wines). When I was drinking wine before my cancer treatment forced me to stop, this was a nice wine to have with dinner. Sometimes I would drink a glass after dinner, but I think 3 Blind Moose fit better as a during dinner drink.
Well, 3 Blind Moose did receive good reviews during a couple of home visits this week. I guess I will continue to use it.
If you would like me to visit you at home (and bring my communion kit with me), then all you have to do is ask.
