Wikipedia describes a wake as "a social rite which highlights the idea that the loss is one of a social group and affects that group as a whole.” Is that not who we are as we acknowledge the death of Christ in Communion? But are we really acknowledging that death? If we do, then do we have to face the deaths in our own lives? Whether its loved ones, or careers, or hopes and dreams, are we awake to our own pain? How might it connect us to Christ to be fully awake to our suffering, and fully a wake to our Christ. Living into the hope, the promise, that death doesn’t have the final word.
