“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?
