I am sure this problem is universal, and not just here in Europe. What do you all think about Christians and work parties where drinking is the going to be rampant? How does a Christian, especially one in a position of authority which more or less requires his/her presence, handle this dilemma? Do they skip the party and risk harming their career in subtle ways? Do they go long enough to put in their presence? Do they "grin and bear it" for the whole party? Drinking is not the question here. This is for those who do not drink out of Biblical conviction. Any thoughts out there? Any thoughts?
