Current Music & The Gospel: “Second Chance,” Tristan Prettyman

Gospel Reflection for March 3, 3rd Sunday of Lent: In Sunday’s gospel parable Jesus teaches his followers both to be more forgiving and to ask for forgiveness when they make a mistake. The gardener in the parable gives the fig tree one more chance to bear fruit, but it can be much harder to give a person who hurt us a second chance. Tristan Prettyman sings about this struggle in her song “Second Chance.”

Key Lines: How many times will you get it wrong/Before you get it right?/Alright, alright/You had my love in your hands, but I’m taking it back/Because it’s not alright/You already got your second chance

Questions: What, if anything, do you think is unforgivable? Do you think there is anything that God will not forgive? How is God’s forgiveness different from human forgiveness? Describe a time when someone gave you a second chance. What was the outcome? How do you feel about the phrase “forgive and forget”? Do you think it is wise advice? Why or why not?
