GOOD FRIDAY 2017: Wake for a Righteous Man

  • 50 Murray Street West Hamilton, ON, L8L Canada (map)

For the last four years we've held a very unique event for Good Friday.

The basic idea? We gather together to host a wake for Jesus. 

Over the course of the evening a number of people will tell stories of the deceased (Jesus) from the perspective of those who met him during his life. 

It's somber, moving, immersive, and a really unique experience. 

Please go to whatever Good Friday service you would like to, and then invite friends or family to join us afterwards for a wake following the death of Jesus.

Here's how the night will go:

We'll gather at 50 Murray St W, Unit 401 - a beautiful condo overlooking the North End and the Waterfront - at 8pm. 

Please dress in black and bring drinks or snacks (funeral snacks preferably... square sandwiches / nanaimo bars / etc) to share.

There will be a single mic at the front of the house, and a storyteller will share a story of the deceased, Jesus, to us all. At the end they offer up a toast to a righteous man, who left us all too soon. We cheers. We take a drink. We continue to talk until the next storyteller goes up to the front.

We hope it will bring the story of Jesus to life in a way you haven't experienced before, and that it will cause you to grow in your love and respect for Jesus.

Wherever you or your friends are with faith and religion, this is a really unique way to experience Good Friday and we invite you to join us for the wake of the Most Righteous Man.
