Another theological take on "Wave of Sorrow"

Some reflections by e~mergent kiwi on the Joshua Tree outtake everybody's been blogging/preaching from. This time, we get a chance to read it in tandem with Zephaniah 2. The comment threads also have an interesting discussion which illustrates well how differently various Christians think about the appropriateness of and the implied meaning behind a Christian thinker engaging theologically with secular art (and with contemporary culture in general) in a believing context. Personally, the concept that when a preacher interacts with a work of art in any way s/he is thereby "claiming" the artist has always completely baffled me, but it clearly has power for some folks.
