Bono Leads the Conversation …

29 08 2009

We wanted to point you to a great blog post at US News and World Report. Guest blogger Bill Hybels, the pastor of Willow Creek Community Church, touches on some highlights from his recent interview with U2’s Bono that was part of this month’s Willow Creek Leadership Summit.

Take a look at what Bill writes:

“The evangelical church has taken a lot of justifiable heat in recent years for being vocal about the things we hate while staying silent about some of the most pressing needs in our world. There are times when I believe the church should be the conscience of our culture, but to Bono’s point, a reframing must occur, one where the divisiveness that once defined us as people of faith gets edged out by a unity around great societal causes. And what has to unite us in this day and age is the fight against poverty and disease. Faith leaders the world over expected this day would come. What we didn’t expect was that it would take an Irish rock star to demand the dawn.”
