MAY 22
Wine and the Bible
with Rodney Chonka

What does the Bible say about wine? The answer may surprise you. Join us as we delve into the enological Scriptures, both celebratory and cautionary. We’ll look at the important role and symbolism of wine in the Christian faith, and learn about wine- making techniques and wine terminology. (No tasting in this session, but recommen- dations will be gladly o ered.) Facilitating the discussion will be Rodney Chonka who teaches wine tasting courses at the Mt. Airy Learning Tree.
