I came across this interview recently. I like the discussion about 23 min in about church. Here’s a rough quote.
Bono on going to churches… I just go where the life is… What I really find hard to take is lifeless ceremony, and I’ve seen a lot of that in churches. But if I feel there is honesty there, truthfulness, doesn’t have to be a charismatic preacher, doesn’t have to be the most super intellectual teaching, I feel there’s honesty and humility and a place where everybody’s welcome, no matter what they look like or how they act even, then I feel comfortable…
That line about lifeless ceremony… wow!
