Some churches have caught the fever to reach out to a generation of people who have left or never entered the church. The U2 Eucharist uses traditional communion liturgy, written by Thomas Cranmer in the 16th Century, and instead of the traditional hymn book or even modern worship music. The services uses lyrics and music from U2, whose lyrics have been has Christian since their beginning.
USAToday covered the story of the growing trend, read it here.
I am going to the U2 concert here in Sydney next Friday evening. If I get a chance to talk with Bono and the band, I will see what they think!!!
What is the average age of a U2 fan? Does this type of service really reach the demographic ‘youth’ or is it an idea that out of touch christians think is cool and appealing?
I’m just asking
Hey guys, I got as close as I could to ask Bono’s opinion – I was right in the front second row. While I could not catch his eye or get the question out – I did have an amazing time at the concert!!
