Music and the Gospel: “Amazing Life,” Britt Nicole, 4th Sunday of Easter

Britt Nicole’s song “Amazing Life” is all about how beautiful the world around us is. However, it’s easy to forget this as we rush through our day with school or work, constantly plugging ourselves in to the latest gossip and technological trends. SPIRIT explores the experience of city kids who work at a farm called Dream of Wild Health farm. They connect with Earth, with each other, and with their Native American history. By working at the farm with the plants and vegetables that have sustained their community in years past, they keep their old traditions alive and connect with the beauty all around us.

Key Lyrics: It’s a beau-beau-beautiful world we’ve been given / From the top of the sky to the ocean / I’ll never understand it all (understand it all) / It must be supernatural

Questions: What are some traditions that you value? What are some Earth-centered traditions you would like to bring back to your home, school, or community? How do you connect and care for the Earth? Take a walk and leave your phone at home. What beauty do you see in the world around you?
