"was Jerusalem builded here, among these dark satanic mills?"

What an amazing performance at Glastonbury. For anyone curious about the hymn that began "Streets" and also showed up in "Bad" last night - I'm sure all our UK readers knew it well, but it was a total mystery to many viewers in the USA - here is a brief homily drawing heavily on it, preached by NT Wright during the Glastonbury Festival in 2007 (tho not in connection with it). I think you can see how the first verse ties in with Glastonbury and the second verse ties in rather well with some standard U2 preoccupations.
