I’m a fan of U2 and all, but this is really not the best way to use their music.

Money quote:

“Earlier attempts by churches to connect to youth culture have usually involved ministers in open-toed sandals strumming acoustic guitars and singing Kumbaya to the general embarrassment of all. Yet, in parishes from California to Maine, worshippers are flocking to hear U2 classics such as Beautiful Day, Pride and Peace on Earth rolled into a service of prayer.”

They’re definitely right about the Kumbaya part.
