(Editor's note: The following suggestion from Ron Stoddart may arrive a little late to be taken advantage of this year, but we thought we would include it this time in case some of you receive this Pastor's Report before Passover and wanted to give Ron's idea a try.)
Every year we have to pour hundreds of small amounts of wine into the glasses at Passover, so I thought you might want to let whoever does it in the church areas know of a simple and effective way to pour quickly and without spillage.
Last year I bought a disposable hypodermic syringe, a fairly large one, and used that without the needle. It is lots easier than pouring from the bottle through those special metal attachments.
In a small church, perhaps there is no need to bother. But in a church where hundreds meet, it is lots of work and almost impossible not to make a mess when the usual methods are used.
