We are traveling today through the Oregon wine country. The town of Newberg features a number of wineries as well as several nearby monasteries and abbeys, thus providing help for those who are thirsty in heart and spirit.
Give strong drink to one who is perishing,
and wine to those in bitter distress;
let them drink and forget their poverty,
and remember their misery no more.
Speak out for those who cannot speak,
for the rights of all the destitute.*
Speak out, judge righteously,
defend the rights of the poor and needy.
