I just saw the short film and I liked it. Eugene Peterson has so much life expierince and Bono's words are like U2's music: honest, realistic, powerfull and with passion. I really like Bono's saying of Psalm 23 between Raised by Wolves and Untill the end of the world during the I&E Tour. Powerfull of using these words between the conflict, bombings in Ireland, the violence and the ultimate conflict between Jesus and Judas. To shout so loudly 'comfort me, comfort me' keeps echoing in my mind. So, I will certainly use this film when I'm organising a U2 retreat again next year.

As an @FullerSeminary grad I couldn't find myself prouder and more inspired by an institution represented by those that find the intersections and inspirations of art and theology like Makoto Fujimura (@iamfujimura) and David Taylor (@wdavidotaylor). I believe U2 have always used their music as a means to extend their primary message and mission: That God is a loving God and earnestly seeks us all to fulfill the great commandment - love God with all your heart, love ALL others as you yourself would want to be loved in this life. This band has always brilliantly used allegory to gently bring us to an awareness of this truth. There's a reason they often reflect on Psalm 116 

I’ll complete what I promised God I’d do,
and I’ll do it together with his people.”

Blessings to you friends and community; Evan
