    You know........whenever people are gathered together in celebration, whether it be a wedding, someone gets a promotion or a new job, in some cases wakes, and lots of times in rememberance, they tend to drink a toast to the person or the event that they are celebrating.

    We take time to toast many of the changes in our lives, but one quick question............

    Why is it that you never hear of people drinking a toast to God? You would think, that in our lives, we could take the time out of a day to raise a glass and say thank you to the Creator for giving us a nice place to live and friends and loved ones in our lives.

    Why not take a moment next time you think about it to drink a toast to Father?

    After all, it states in the Bible that "wine is a gift from God to gladden the hearts of men".

    I think God would appreciate our prayers more than a toast.

    Christians partake in Communion.

    So, only Christians are allowed to drink a toast to Father? Why can't the common person do it whenever they stop and think about it? Does it HAVE to be done in a church? If so, why?

    I don't know of any rule against it...most likely if you've thought it, it's already happened.

    It doesn't HAVE to be in a physical church. The "church" is the people anyhow, not the building. I've taken Communion by myself before in remembrance of Him.
