U2’s Bono interview about Christ

No Apologizing

Okay….so I am always on the lookout for how celebrities describe their faith.  I find it interesting.  9 times out of 10 they end up creating a God that does not exist in the Bible.  Then along comes this excerpt from a book where Bono from U2 is being interviewed about his faith.  Actually the interview is from September 2010…but never the less it is an incredible read.  The following excerpt is from the poached egg and can be found at this link.

 

Bono: My understanding of the Scriptures has been made simple by the person of Christ. Christ teaches that God is love. What does that mean? What it means for me: a study of the life of Christ. Love here describes itself as a child born in straw poverty, the most vulnerable situation of all, without honor. I don’t let my religious world get too…

Tuesday Tunes: Lisa Crawley – “Leaving”

I was first introduced to Silver Scroll Nominee, Lisa Crawley, when she opened for John Mayer a couple of years ago in Wellington. I was struck by her creative songwriting, diverse instrumentation and great stage presence (she didn’t have a huge backing band to hide behind).

I don’t think I will ever get sick of this song. I’ve been playing it heaps lately. It’s funny though…I feel really happy when I listen to it but it’s not really a happy song…weird. Is it possible to have a happy break-up song? Maybe.

I think it’s the beautiful harmonising on this track that makes me happy.

Harmonies make the world go ’round.

Tuesday Tunes: All Sons & Daughters – “Reason to Sing”

This is my song today. I’m feeling pretty tired and it’s only Tuesday…got a late night at work and I NEED a reason to sing. I don’t want my songs to be void of feeling. I want my heart to be full and overflowing with love. Yet sometimes, all I can do is sit down and be still and let God sing over me.

 

Lyrics

When the pieces seem to shatter
To gather off the floor
And all that seems to matter
Is that I don’t feel you anymore
No I don’t feel you anymore

I need a reason to sing
I need a reason to sing
I need to know that You’re still holding
The whole world in Your hands
I need a reason to sing

When I’m overcome by fear
And I hate everything I know
If this waiting lasts forever
I’m afraid I might let go
I’m afraid I might let go

I need a reason to sing
I need a reason to sing
I need to know that You’re still holding
The whole world in Your hands
I need a reason to sing

Will there be a victory
Will You sing it over me now
Oh 
Your peace is the melody
You sing it over me now
Oh Lord
Will there be a victory
Will You sing it over me now
Oh Lord
Your peace is the melody
You sing it over me now

I need a reason to sing
I need a reason to sing
I need to know that You’re still holding
The whole world in Your hands
That is a reason to sing
