Rather than start my series on Faith and Politics this late in the week, I chose instead to upload the classic video from the 2002 Super Bowl. One of my professors in seminary was obsessed with U2. He made the observation that in the wake of September 11, there were many Christians who were quick to cast blame for what had happened. But here, Bono sang about hope.
And so I post this video as a reminder of the time when – even for a brief moment – people were willing to focus on what actually mattered, a message that’s seemingly lost on both sides of the current health care debate. I’ll say more on this issue next week.
“Here we do not have a lasting city, but we are seeking the one to come.” (Hebrews 13:14)
“I’ll show you a place where there’s no sorry and no shame…where the streets have no name.”
