“You Are a Tourist” – SPIRIT Xtra for January 22, 2012

“You Are a Tourist,” Death Cab for Cutie, Codes and Keys, Atlantic Recording

Gospel Reflection: When Jesus begins to call his followers, their lives take a radically different turn.  They leave their fishing nets behind.  In “You Are a Tourist” the band Death Cab for Cutie describes how following our hearts can lead us into unfamiliar territory.

Key Lines: And if you feel just like a tourist in the city you were born/Then it’s time to go/And define your destination/There’s so many different places to call home

Questions: What are the risks of following Jesus? To what unexpected places has Jesus led you? How do you feel when you start something new? When have you felt a “burning in your heart” like the song describes? Where has it led you?
