The band, U2FX, is providing U2charist, a traditional communion service featuring the music of the band U2, in support of Disciple Bible Outreach Ministries. According to DBOM, the service, which features live music, “centers on these themes: desire for God, God’s love for the poor, and God’s call for justice for the exploited and oppressed. The music, prayers, and liturgy are bursting with the message of global reconciliation-with the truth that we are to be Christians without borders, called, in the name of love, to be neighbors to all and friends to the least of these.”
The first event is Saturday, March 27, 7 p.m., Edenton St. UMC, Raleigh. Local churches across North Carolina are invited to hold a U2charist. For more information contact Annick Young at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.U2FX.org.
