Current Music and the Gospel: “It’s Time,” Imagine Dragons

“It’s Time,” Imagine Dragons, Continued Silence, Interscope

Gospel Reflection for November 18, 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time: Jesus tells us in Sunday’s gospel that no matter what disasters or upheavals occur, his truth will remain the same. Even though the world has changed in so many ways since Jesus lived, died, and was raised up, we still have his words preserved in the gospels. “It’s Time” is a song about remaining true to oneself no matter how much is changing around us.”

Key Lines: It’s time to begin, isn’t it?/I get a little bit bigger, but then I’ll admit/I’m just the same as I was/Now don’t you understand/I’m never changing who I am

Questions: In what ways have you changed in the past year? How have you stayed the same? What situations have you encountered that made standing your ground hard? In what ways have our laws changed over the course of history? How have those changes moved us toward justice and equality?
