Have you heard about U2charist? Amazing.

There are churches all around the world, from Dublin and Southern California, who have been trying out a new worship service that incorporates the music of U2. I think it sounds amazing. And I want to go. Although I think most pastors/ priests may be hard pressed to explain the line: "a mole/ digging in a hole/ digging in my soul." But hey, ya' never know.
