Music and the Gospel: “Bright,” Echosmith; Easter Sunday

Throughout our lives we have moments of feeling distant from God and times of feeling God’s embrace in fullness. When I feel connected to God, I see God’s wonder and beauty all around me and within me. I see the flowers. I appreciate the gifts of my day. Even waiting in traffic is more bearable. I feel “Bright” as Echosmith explains in this song. It’s a great Easter song. After his resurrection, we see Jesus in a new light.

Key Lyrics: ‘Cause now I’m shining bright, so bright / Bright, so bright / And I see colors in a different way / You make what doesn’t matter fade to grey / Life is good and that’s the way it should be

Questions: Call to mind a moment when you felt “Bright.” Tell a friend about this memory. When do you feel connected to God? What disconnects you? What helps you stay connected?
