Bono's best sermon yet: Remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast

Here is a link to Bono from U2's speech at the national prayer breakfast. If you get a chance to read the article, i would love here your comments on it.

As I read this transcript from his speech, many issues hit me like a ton of bricks, but the following quote is what I wish to think about for awhile...

"A number of years ago, I met a wise man who changed my life. In countless ways, large and small, I was always seeking the Lord's blessing. I was saying, you know, I have a new song, look after it…. I have a family, please look after them…. I have this crazy idea...

And this wise man said: stop.

He said, stop asking God to bless what you're doing.

Get involved in what God is doing - because it's already blessed.

Well, God, as I said, is with the poor. That, I believe, is what God is doing.

And that is what he's calling us to do."

What is God doing? A very good challenge.

Amen. This guy never ceases to amaze me. John I think his perspective, one that is not tainted by culture, is one that we would both love to have. Bono has preached some great sermons, and like you said, this tops them all. Thanks for sharing this.
