Advent begins the liturgical year in the Roman Catholic Church. A new year is a time of change, and in the gospel this Sunday, Jesus warns his followers to prepare for great changes. We can reflect on the past year and challenge ourselves for the year to come. “Radioactive” is a song about a time of change, the ability to grow into new possibilities.
Key Lines: All systems go, the sun hasn’t died / Deep in my bones, straight from inside / I’m waking up, I feel it in my bones / Enough to make my systems blow / Welcome to the new age, to the new age / Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Questions: In what unexpected ways has your life changed during the last year? What lessons have you learned? How does being a follower of Jesus change the way you live your life? When is a time God has surprised you? Why do you think Jesus wants his followers to be vigilant, instead of telling them when he will return?
