Rock the Congregation

From the We Swear We’re Not Making It Up Department…

Looking to shake up their congregations, while at the same time appealing to new, younger congregants, Episcopal parishes from coast to coast have begun hosting special communion services highlighted with songs and video clips of WHAT band?

A) U2
B) Eminem
C) Green Day
D) Creed

A) U2. These so-called “U2 Eucharists” weave the band’s tunes (at least those with biblical references) into the liturgy, complete with dancing, singing — and earplugs for those who want them.

Among the U2 songs typically played at these events are ”Pride (In the Name of Love),” “Peace on Earth” and “40.”
