Anglican Bishop Plans ‘U-2-charist’

April 9, 2007

“Rock music can be a vehicle of immense spirituality,” said Timothy Ellis, the Bishop of Grantham. He was announcing that a live band would play U2 classics such as “Beautiful Day” and “Mysterious Ways” with special sing-along lyrics in the English town of Lincoln in May. People will also be able to dance and wave their hands, and their focus is to be on the Millennium Development Goals of the UN, a plan to alleviate world poverty. The sharing of music powerfully binds people together and A Future Without War looks forward to more similar concerts staged world-wide where the focus will be an ending war for all time. (FC)
