You, Me, and the Bourgeoisie: SPIRIT Xtra for October 16th

“You, Me, and the Bourgeoisie,” The Submarines, Honeysuckle Weeks, Nettwerk Productions

Gospel Reflection: Jesus sums up the struggle to live authentically in faith in a secular world when he says, “Then give to Caesar what is Caesar’s, but give to God what is God’s.” “You, Me, and the Bourgeoisie” expresses the desire to live a spiritual life in a world of material distraction.

Key Lines: And here we are with the pleasures of the first world/It’s laid out before us, who are we to break down?/Every day we wake up/We choose love/We choose light/And we try, it’s too easy just to fall apart

Questions: When have you disagreed with government laws? How do you balance following the law with following your faith? How do you choose to live as a Christian in a secular world? What problems do you encounter?

    Thank you for making the Spirit “song of the week” more accessible. Last year, I took the time to use YOUTUBE to find the song, but you have done the work for me and I am grateful. So are the students!!

  2. We’re happy to help, Eleanor – and we’re glad your students are still enjoying SPIRIT! What else would you like to see on our blog?
