Music and the Gospel: “Supposed To Be,” Arty, 5th Sunday of Lent

This week’s SPIRIT is about letting go of something to make room for something better. Letting go of dreams or accepting changes in our plans isn’t easy. But making room opens us up to new possibilities and growth. Arty’s song “Supposed to Be” suggests all our experiences take us right where we’re supposed to be.

Key lines: Searching for the reasons we all get lost / Standing on the banks of a river that we cannot cross / If you spend your whole life living in the past / Then you’re just a stranger in a photograph I don’t know why some are meant to leave / In my mind you’re still here with me / But if God can smile then feel less lonely / Then you’re right where you’re supposed to be

Questions: When have you worked hard at something that doesn’t go as planned? How did you handle this? In what new directions did this moment take you? What do you feel is frightening about change? What is good about change? What are some examples of changes taking place in your life? How does change challenge you to grow?
