Of all the juices, grape is the one that we have the strangest relationship with. I mean, it’s delicious, refreshing and delightful, but we’ve also made it the blood of our Lord and Savior. That’s a big responsibility to put on grapes. Have you ever thought about that? How do the other fruits feel? Pomegranate is the hot fruit right now (trust me dragonfruit is next) but it’s not closely associated with the blood of Jesus Christ. But for us Christians grape juice is, at least those that don’t take wine at church. Can you participate in communion and then ever cool off with a tall glass of grape juice after mowing the lawn? I can’t.
(Big thanks to Jonathan A. in Mexico for the grape juice idea)
