January 2013 POM!
« on: February 11, 2013, 10:45:51 AM »
Despite technical problems, blizzards, and increased interest in the subject of homosexuality moderators have finally managed to designate the Post of the Month of January 2013. Unlike 1 or 2 previous times this time we received several equally good posts.

After quite a fierce voting I can finally announce the winner - arimethea - who has won by a hair with his runner up:

At my church when we have two priests for comunion, one chalice is consecrated at the consecration and then, at the priests' communion, blood from the consecrated chalice is added to the second chalice to consecrate the wine therein.

 ??? ??? ???

I thought this is a Protestant practice. So basically consecrated and non-consecrated wines are mixed?

How can this be a protestant practice when protestants do not believe the wine becomes the blood of Christ?

Once the consecrated blood is added to the wine in the other chalice it becomes consecrated, it transforms the wine just as it transforms us when we partake.

WORTHY! WORTHY! WORTHY!

Worthy indeed.

I remember this one very well - unusual for me.  :D

WOOT!

Sometimes I say something smart by accident, just proves the Holy Spirit works and is present in our lives.
