"In the beginning, God pulled the sheets off...."
There've been a few interesting postings leading up to and in the wake of U2's recent concerts on the West Coast of the USA. First, at New Hope Church in Calgary (which we've linked before here in conjunction with various pop culture homilies) June 5 saw a message that examined the overall arc of the Christian narrative (creation, fall, redemption & return) via the lens of U2. (The page linked simply lists some Scripture references paired with lyrics, but you can listen to MP3s of the sermon itself.) There are some interesting comments on "White as Snow" and a Communion rite using "Moment of Surrender" along the way. Pastor John Van Sloten also included some reflections on how the concert fed into the preaching experience on his blog.
