Music and the Gospel: “Unsteady,” X Ambassadors, 32nd Sunday Ordinary Time

People react to grief in different ways. Some people distance themselves and internalize their grief. Others may express their grief and adapt quickly to their loss. The loss of a loved one can shake up any family and environment. The song “Unsteady” is an expression of this shake up, what we feel when solid ground starts to shift underneath us, and the loneliness that can accompany grief and loss.

Key Lyrics: Hold, hold on, hold onto me / ‘Cause I’m a little unsteady / A little unsteady

Questions: When have you experienced loss? How did you handle the experience? How did the people around you handle it? What and who helped keep you steady during this time?
