On the Friday before Spring break, my class on the Bible covered the Psalms, and so the U2 song “40” got a mention. I was apparently the only one there who had ever sung the song in church.

I hope that at some point my church may hold a U2charist service. (Yes, that really is a thing). The combination of music I like and a wonderfully groanworthy pun makes it irresistable.

    I once drove 2 hours to attend a U2charist. Totally worth it.
