Media @ New Hope CalgaryIn this message we’re going to examine the overall arc of the Christian narrative (creation, fall, redemption & return) via the lens of U2.

“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth”
Genesis 1:1, TNIV

“Only love... only love can leave such a mark!”
U2, Magnificent, No Line on the Horizon

“Then the devil led Jesus up to a high place and quickly showed him all the nations on earth. The devil said, "I will give all this power and glory to you. It has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. Just worship me, and you can have it all."
Luke 4:5-7 CEV

“All of this, all of this can be yours
All of this, all of this can be yours
All of this, all of this can be yours
Just give me what I want and no one gets hurt...”
U2, Vertigo, How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb

“Is it true that perfect love drives out all fear?”
U2, I’ll go Crazy if I don’t go Crazy Tonight, No Line on the Horizon

“Perfect love drives out fear”
1 John 4:18

“I want to feel
Sunlight on my face
I see the dust cloud disappear
Without a trace
I want to take shelter from the poison rain
Where the streets have no name”
U2, Where the Streets have no Name, The Joshua Tree

"In the beginning, God pulled the sheets off...."
There've been a few interesting postings leading up to and in the wake of
U2's recent concerts on the West Coast of the USA. First, at New Hope
Church in Calgary (which we've linked before here in conjunction with
various pop culture homilies) June 5 saw a message that examined the
overall arc of the Christian narrative (creation, fall, redemption &
return) via the lens of U2. (The page linked simply lists some Scripture
references paired with lyrics, but you can listen to MP3s of the sermon
itself.) There are some interesting comments on "White as Snow" and a
Communion rite using "Moment of Surrender" along the way. Pastor John Van
Sloten also included some reflections on how the concert fed into the
preaching experience on his blog.
