It’s 1:30am and just as I was thinking of heading to bed I look over at my TV and see a VH1 special coming on: U2 All Access Spotlight.  I really need TiVo.  It’s the dress rehearsal for U2′s upcoming world tour (which I will not be attending.  @#(*&@!) 

BTW…  Today @ church we did the song, "Blessed Be Your Name" and threw in a little of U2′s "With or Without You."  It was nice.  But what was really cool was watching everyone’s faces.

    I noticed that. I was hoping to catch up with you just so I could say, whats up, Bono!

    Brother Hodge, your a “emerging church” GURU! I LOVE IT! I LOVE IT! It would be cool to list a host of secular songs that could mix with contemp/trad worship songs. Pink Floyd, Music from the 80′s, TON LOC (I know that’s your favorite HODGY). It would be the same as using movie clips into your sermons, but it would be nice to have a listing of songs (or verses from the songs) to mix w/ worship songs.
    What songs or verses from songs would you list? And what worship songs would you mix the secular song with?

    Brad, Wes, Tonya and Martin saw U2 live Friday night in Phoenix. They will never be the same. :)

  4. I presume that by “Blessed be your name” you mean the Tree63 song which is basically identical to “With or without you”, but with different lyrics? Ah, yes, that song.
    Here’s a fun exercise; imagine, just for a moment, that Bono has a lisp. Now if you imagine him singing “With or without you,” you’ll notice that it sounds a lot like “Whistle without you.”(whithtle without you…)
    Now just try not to think of that when you hear it next. ;-)
    Keep on rocking in the free world, Scott.

    My mother in law’s church’s youth group just spent $1200.00 on U2 tickets for our pastor who is leaving. ( apparently they got them on Ebay!)

    Scott Hodge – you rebel you! Mixing that evil rock n roll music in at church! :)
    Hey, I used to attend a church where drums were not allowed. Evidently, they believed God had a thing against percussion. They considered it better to warble religious dirges about what unworthy slugs we all are than to express a little joy, gratitude and celebration in our worship.
    Keep it up, Pastor! Keep ‘em on their toes!
