Music and the Gospel: “Cool Kids,” Echosmith

We all have times where we don’t feel like the “cool kid,” when our peers exclude us and hurt us. Some of us experience this more intensely than others. We each have the power to share the love we receive from God with those around us. Taking time to remember the pain we felt when we were hurt can motivate us to pull others into our circles of friends and keep them from feeling this pain.

Key Lines: I wish that I could be like the cool kids, / ‘Cause all the cool kids, they seem to fit in / I wish that I could be like the cool kids, like the cool kids.

Questions: Remember a time when you didn’t feel like a cool kid. Stand up and without talking move your body into a position that expresses what that felt like. Now move to a position that expresses what it feels like to be included and confident. What has happened when someone did include you among their friends? What is the one thing you can do to include someone whom you see being excluded?
