Leader(s): Murray Groom

Murray enjoys wine.  His pleasure over the spirit of wine is tempered by a Methodist conscience that also honours the soul of the grape.  As a priest, he knows the sacramental power of the cup; as a theologian, he derives much food for thought from the images of the vine and the fruit of the vine in Judeo-Christian tradition.  Above all, Murray appreciates the communion of folk who gather to consider the nature of blessing. Murray lives on Vancouver Island in the second most productive wine region in BC, outside the Okanagan Valley.
