Music and the Gospel: “Ordinary Love” and Easter

Both Mary Magdalene and Thomas the apostle are sure that Jesus’ death means the end of their relationship with him. When Jesus appears to each of them, they learn that even the end of life on earth cannot separate them from the love of Jesus. In our lives, too, we often struggle to recognize that Jesus still lives and his love is always with us.

Key Lines: ‘Cause we can’t fall any further if we can’t feel ordinary love / And we cannot reach any higher, if we can’t deal with ordinary love / Are we tough enough for ordinary love?

Questions: What is ordinary about Jesus’ love for us? What is extraordinary? How is Jesus’ death and resurrection a sign of his love for us? Where do you see God present in our world? What keeps us from seeing God’s love? When is love a challenge? What makes faith difficult?
