Leaning on Our Ancestors

“Everyone who sees the Son and believes in him may have eternal life,
and I shall raise him up on the last day” (John 6:40) As Christians, we
do not mean this figuratively. Literally, we can (and should!) continue
our relationship with our loved ones, our ancestors.
How do we, how should we, relate with our deceased? First and
foremost, we must continue to communicate with them. As with many
island cultures, we must continue to talk with them, actively
recognizing that they are still with us. While we do not pray to our
loved ones, continued communication is much like the mental effort
involved with prayer. And just as God communicates in and through
our lives, so too do our loved ones.
