U2Charist VII

Today was our seventh annual U2Charist, our Episcopal Eucharist will use music by the rock band U2 in place of traditional hymns, which reminds us that God moves in mysterious ways, even in some popular music. Real worship of course is not just about singing songs and having a nice time. Real worship is about service and transformation. U2charists call us to love our neighbor, near and far. Love is an action, not just a feeling. U2charists call participants to concrete action in support of The United Nations Millennium Development Goals. U2’s lead singer, Bono, is a passionate advocate of the MDGs, and has been proclaimed a global MDG ambassador. The U2charist seeks to raise awareness of the MDGs and call people worldwide to a deeper faith and engagement with God's mission. May we hear God’s call to prayerful action in our world today.
