Today I went with a friend of mine to a U2charist in Hendrick’s Chapel. I always thought it strange that a religious service might focus around the music of Bono and the gang, so I had to check it out. This type of service replaces traditional hymns with the music of U2. Projected onto a large screen via powerpoint were the lyrics to “Where the Streets Have No Name” and “Pride (In the Name of Love)” among many, many others. It was really surreal and a somewhat enlightening experience.
Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U2charist for an idea of the format and a little more background information (credible? maybe!). Giving another listen to U2 couldn’t hurt, either.
