    wasnt tempted myself during the acutal ceremonies; HOWEVER: the sister whose husband used to supply the wine for the memorial in the 70's; well her son's would be round the back of the KHell after the memorial supping it!!! They were only about 12/13!!!

    Always wanted a sipp myself after the annual ordeal but was scared mum and dad would find out.

    I never felt like drinking it, nor do I want to live like an Angel up there.

    I would rather play in the mud down here with some female....hehe

    Ha! Once. Very. I passed the glass and got a whiff of some really good stuff. Someone had splurged on the bottle, presumably the person who was going to take it home and drink it after memorial. Seriously, my mouth watered. But I was "good" and just passed it on. Dammit.

    Never was interested in partaking at the memorial and would not be interested to go back and partake (as some have done).

    This has nothing to do with my personal views on partaking of communion as a Christian.

    Never really was much, although the thought did cross my mind. So.... 2?

    Now, afraid of spilling the wine? 9

    I have wine on memorial night. Just not at a kh. More than likely I drink wine with a little pasta and salad.

    To drink the wine at a memorial would require that I attend a kh. That will not happen ever again. Been there done that. Thank you very much.

    Unlike Odrade's congregation, I think we had the cheapest wine selection that fit the bill. Usually a Kosher wine that went for around $6 a bottle. I bought some once just to try it. I had one sip and dumped the rest of the bottle down the drain. It was the most vile crap ever.

    I never was tempted to drink the wine. However, I have been tempted to dump it on the floor--and if I ever get dragged to the Crapmorial, I will not only dump the glass, but I will do all I can to bust it as well to create a broken glass hazard plus a nice wine stain on the carpet.

    I have been partaking for sometime now that I do not go to the Witness's memorial service. Many years ago in a Northern Utah Kingdom Hall I partook for the first time, I was a regular pioneer at the time and always felt the desire, but after my first partaking a few elders informed they would not recognize it as legitimate and count it, as if that mattered. Since that time I no longer have a sad hart concerning partaking cause now I recognize the Associated Bible Students and their view on matters which is quite basic, most people become all agitated over the use of the pyramid and fail to see why they use it as a graph only, besides its a lot less intrusive than the blood issue or holidays and voting and on and on that the Witness's have now because of Rutherford.
