« U2 and the failed rapture - such a disappointment | Main | Teaching U2: The Classroom as Theological Learning Space »

June 04, 2011


Thank you Tim for your beautiful and insightful article about God's spirit/wind/breath. I searched for "breath of God" and found your discussion after looking through dozens of sites and songs that used the phrase. I was inspired to search for breath of God by a vision I saw yesterday in the late afternoon light of hanging pepper branches gently swaying in the breeze, which inspired me to say to myself, "I see God's breath." I felt the immediate presence of God's "breath" that you describe as "God's ... ever-present ongoing spirit-of-life/wind-of-life/breath-of-life which enables the act of creation." I believe God is always with us and I cherish the glimpses of his Spirit that I occasionally sense! Thank you again :)

    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.
