Walk On

I love my wife... She just knows me... If Astral Weeks wasn't enough, she has picked up Steve Stockman's book Walk On - the Spiritual journey of U2 I am so chuffed - U2 are one of my fav bands just now and Bono is a true hero. I was so late to the party when it comes to U2 - the Soos tried for so long to get me into them but it has only been in the last 3 years or so that I got them... and now I can't get enough :-)

Anyway, it turns out that Steve Stockman runs the Rhythms of Redemption site that I have referenced previously. The site is fantastic and truly is a worthy read.

In one of the interviews with Bono, I found this:
Finishing many gigs on the Vertigo Tour with Yahweh, a prayer of commitment, that ends with a pleading that God would take his heart and make it break is a little upside down in a music world more renowned for its selfish indulgence. Bono tells Assayas that it is at the Cross where he gets humbled: “The point of the death of Christ is that Christ took on the sins of the world, so that what we put out did not come back to us, and that our sinful nature does not reap the obvious death. That’s the point it should keep us humbled…It’s not our own good works that gets us through the gates of Heaven.”
Bono heralds the faith taken from "Bono In Conversation with Michka Assayas"

Truly powerful. Honey, I love you! Thank you.

Check it out!
