More on U2 and Bono

Is Bono a Christian or is he part of forming the one world religion Rick Warren , The New Apostolic Movement and others are currently forming.
By the way read your Bibles. The Word of God predicts this all.
This should be of no suprise to anyone currently reading scripture.
You decide what Bono is after reading this.

Apostasy? More Churches Rock Communion With U2Added: Nov 24th, 2006 10:32 AMChurch rolls with U2's rockIrish band's songs are part of services

ENCINITAS – There were lightsticks and earplugs. People danced and clapped. But this was no concert. This was church.Yesterday, as the sun went into its evening descent, St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Encinitas joined a growing list of congregations around the world who are blending the music of the Irish rock band U2 with special Communion services. The result is something being called a “U2 Eucharist” – or “U2charist” for short.The music is rock – but the message is the rock of ages.“It's all about reaching out to the least among us,” said the Rev. Wesley Hills, the church's rector who briefly wore sunglasses, like lead U2 singer Bono, as he welcomed a packed sanctuary.The mission of the U2 Eucharist movement is to help the United Nations achieve the eight Millennium Development Goals it adopted in 2000, which pledges to eradicate poverty and disease by the year 2015, Hills told the congregation. To that end, last night's offering will be donated to Episcopal Relief and Development.U2's music is used because Bono, the band's lead singer and a Christian, is the global ambassador for the millennium campaign. At a National Prayer Breakfast in Washington D.C. earlier this year, Bono described the goals as “the Beatitudes for a globalized world.”But the popular U2 songs also are seen as metaphors for faith and justice, with the lyrics packed with multiple meanings and pointed challenges. “One love, one blood, one life, you got to do what you should,” the congregation sang after the sermon. “Heaven on Earth, we need it now,” they sang during the offering. “One step closer to knowing, one step closer to knowing,” they sang as they headed up the aisle to take Communion.Teenagers like 14-year-old Ivy Deane of St. Andrew's pronounced the U2 Eucharist “really cool.”Bob Bauer, who is a member of St. Luke's Episcopal Church in North Park and is 56, also liked it. “I thought it really was calling us to put into action what Christ was calling us to do and that's be his hands on Earth,” he said.In all, more than 350 people attended yesterday evening's service. “It's like Easter or Christmas,” said Michael May, one of the head ushers, as he surveyed the packed pews.At least one other church has held a U2 Eucharist in San Diego County. In the last two years, dozens of such services have been held as far away as Australia. Most of the hosts have been Episcopal congregations, but the list also includes Roman Catholic, Lutheran, United Methodist and United Church of Christ, among others.Last year, St. George's Episcopal Church in York Harbor, Maine, became one of the first to hold a U2 Eucharist. “It spread like wildfire,” said St. George's rector, the Rev. Paige Blair, who is now co-authoring a book on the movement and has become a kind of guru for these services.Blair said additional U2 Eucharist services already are scheduled into 2007 – including one in England to be broadcast on Easter Sunday. “It's pretty exciting and a little overwhelming,” Blair said in a telephone interview from Maine.Why is it so popular? “We're giving people a way to engage their faith in the world in a meaningful way,” she said.Blair estimates that more than $36,000 has been raised from the U2 Eucharist services for the global Millennium Development Goals.“People are learning there is something they can do to change the world,” she said. “And they leave feeling that they really can.”At St. Andrew's in Encinitas, Hills said there may be more U2 Eucharist services. “Lord knows Bono has plenty of songs,” he added.© Copyright 2006 Union-Tribune Publishing Co. • A Copley Newspaper Site
