Churches launch service based on U2's music
10/26/2006 1:00 PM, Yahoo! Music
A communion service based on the music of U2 has become the latest trend for a number of Episcopal churches across the U.S.
The U2Charist--named after the band and the Eucharist communion--weaves songs by the Irish rockers into a church service along with corresponding slides.
Reported by USA Today, the special service was the idea of the Reverend Paige Blair, an Episcopal priest in York Harbor, Maine, who held the first U2Charist at her church on July 31, 2005.
Kicking off with "Pride (In the Name Of Love)," the service also incorporates images from historical civil rights campaigners such as Ghandi, Martin Luther King, and Rosa Parks.
The service has now been held in 150 churches across 15 U.S. states.
Speaking to the newspaper, Rev Blair said that the inherent Christian message in much of U2's material made them perfect for use in church.
She explained: "Bach and Handel were the popular music of their day, and they had trouble getting played in church. The Methodist hymn writers once wrote contemporary music. Are we worshiping Bono? Absolutely not. No more so than we worship Martin Luther when we sing 'A Mighty Fortress Is Our God.'"
The content of the U2Charist apparently varies from church to church, but a key part is an offering for Bono's campaign to eradicate extreme poverty and global AIDS.
On this, Blair added: "It's a big reason that this has taken off as a movement. It's what Bono and the band are passionate about."

Josh: So Bowden, who do you believe should be the next President?
Josh: Do you think the Redskins would be a good President?
Josh: What is the first law you think the Redskins should make when they are President?
Bowden: No tackling people!
Don't worry Bowden...they're taking care of that even without being elected.

Morgan and I were in Del Mar working for SNP which is a company that puts together events. This week we created a party for the employees of Qualcomm. It was an incredible experience. I had a great time. We were put up in the Marriott just a couple miles from the fair grounds.
All of our meals were taken care of at the site. We worked long hours but it was fun. I met a lot of cool new people. A good deal of them were from Biola, but there were others who are contracted by SNP. It was amazing to see how you can go from a gross cement building to a fantastic looking party.
There were 4 different main areas:
The Peacock Room
Black and White
Tent City It was a gypsy themed party. There were stilt walkers, tarot card readers, fortune tellers, fire breathers, sword fights, magicians were out in Tent City. In side the halls there were bands and lounge singers. In the black and white area there was a magic show that included a cheetah. I loved being able to see it all come together. I look forward to being apart of more events hopefully in the near future.
All week long Morgan and I wore all black, so we of course had to get a photo of ourselves. We took this as soon as we got to my moms after our last day of work was done.
This week was not without its owees I recieved two blisters on my right hand from pulling staple gun staples out of a bar front. I also managed to get half a dozen blister on my left foot. I so need to look into better footwear!
We went out for steaks with my mom after our last day on the job. Here is Morgan who swears she doesn't eat meat with a nice juicy steak in front of her. I now have proof that she is a carnivore!

Jamba Lady "Our machines are down do you have any cash?"
Me "I only have like 2 bucks on me."
Jamba Lady puts in her employee discount,
"How close to $2.32 can you get?"
Me "Let me see"
I had exactly $2.32!
So I got my Jamba fix and I paid a discounted price.
