« Reflections on My First Week at Fuller | Main | Awareness and Understanding »

February 20, 2006


Tim, glad you have posted a blog. When I was at the yale emergent conversation, they referenced a book coming out by a guy (some help I am, can't remember his name - he was there too) who just wrote a book about Bono, U2 and faith stuff. Maybe you have heard/know about it....or now can look out for it. There must be others too, but the emergent people were talking about it.

Hi, just a note that I'll probably link these reflections on the blog for the book of U2 sermons within the next week or so. Enjoy your time at Fuller.

James, was this the book that you were talking about?

So perhaps we can join in Bono's invitation to move with congruency of Life, without the dualistic qualities of secular and sacred. The moments where the Streets Have No Names, is for me, the end of duality. The hierarchal stance of the Sacred as ultimately Better, dissolves into a moment of relief.

thanks for sharing your thoughts on this. it gave me some insight that i never considered regarding vertigo and i will follow.

great post.

here's a link to the book from chris scharen from yale -

hey, tim, thanks for your keen reflections. the holistic sense of faith and life imspires me, too.
look forward to your reflections.

    U2: Rock 'n' Roll to Change the World

    From its beginning in 1976, U2 has consistently interacted with its environment, both influencing and being influenced by the world around. Giving as much attention to social, political and spiritual issues as it does musical creativity, this Irish quartet provides a unique case study in the intersection of artistic expression and cultural engagement.
