Does Your Congregation Use Fermented Wine Or Grape Juice In The Lord's Supper ? Due to the current debate, in another thread, on fermented wine vs grape juice being appropriate this is an attempt to discern what most congregations are using. When I was a union ironworker many years ago, labor disputes were sometimes brought to court to determine who had jurisdiction over a particular type of work. One of the major determining factors was 'area practice.' Ironworkers were to set precast beams/panels. The work generally would be done in a day and since there was a building boom at the time members didn't want to go out of the hiring hall for a day so operating engineers began taking the work. When work got slow the ironworkers wanted the precast back but the judge ruled that due to 'area practice', ie. operating engineers have been doing it, we, the ironworkers lost the work. So, in terms of wine vs grape juice ...... what is your 'area practice' ?
