U2charist and Yahweh video

So I've begun attempt planning a U2charist with some friends. I've been wanting to do this for a while...and some folks have been asking about it lately...

The idea is to pull together a full worship service, complete with communion, using the music of U2. The band has given blanket permission for their songs to be used in the special services so long as the message ties into the Millenium Development Goals (which is pretty easy) and any money collected goes to a charity that is doing something to help the MGDs along (such as Bread for the World, Lutheran World Relief, etc.)

One of the people who originated the idea has a cool U2charist resource blog, if anyone happens to read this and be interested in more information. (There are also resources HERE.)

Anyway, I found this video and wanted to share:

So I now have an interested guitarist and I need to find a bassist and a drummer (or I suppose I can play kit for it)...
