"What a blessing it will be to attend a banquet in the Kingdom of God!"

Is it sacrilegious to say that the wine at last Sunday's Eucharist was particularly excellent?

I don't think so. The Eucharist is many things simultaneously. Among those things, it is a foretaste of the Messiah's banquet. And we know that the Messiah serves the good stuff.

A friend of ours at TEDS who was from Korea was telling us about a bunch of military cadets who once came to his church. They used wine of course (not the Welch's we pansy EFC types use) and the cadets had been on a regiment of forced abstinence. It is also apparently considered polite in Korea to express one's enjoyment of food and drink when one is a guest by slurping and making enjoyment noises. The cadets were apparently REALLY enjoying the wine based on the amount of noise they were making as the cup was passed . . .
