If you are over the age of 50 the name "Bono" or "U2" may have no meaning to you at all. But I am fairly sure that those who are younger than 45 and came of "age" in the 1980s, 1990s and beyond then these names are known better than the Vice President, Speaker of the House and a host of other lights. I have loved U2 since I became aware of them when "Joshua Tree" came out. I neither understood nor appreciated the depth of meaning in the music then. But I do now. Bono is a gadfly. He makes some Christians squirm and others want to praise God. He has something to say and I encourage you to listen to his voice. May we have eyes to see and ears to hear.
