“Spectrum,” SPIRIT Xtra for April 22, 2012

“Spectrum,” Florence + The Machine, Ceremonials, Universal Island Records

Gospel Reflection: Jesus’ disciples feel afraid and unsure until he returns to them and they experience him risen and bringing them peace. Through his loyalty and love, Jesus helps his disciples to understand who he truly is. “Spectrum” shows us how love can change the way we see the world and ourselves.

Key Lines: When we first came here we were cold and we were clear/With no colors in our skin, we were light and paper thing/And when we first came here we were cold and we were clear/With no colors in our skin ’til we let the spectrum in/Say my name and every color illuminates/We are shining and we will never be afraid again

Questions: In what ways has a relationship with Jesus changed you? What relationship brings you peace? What are some of the Christlike qualities you see in your friends? What stops us from recognizing goodness in others? Where do you recognize Jesus present in your life today?
