There’s a new youth ministry blog that is run by the transitpastor. I know nothing about him. He recently made a post about the new U2 album, so I thought I would of course share since I’m a fellow U2 fan and I know some of you only follow this blog because I post things about my favorite band.
We all know Bono from the megaband U2, my favorite band btw, has always walked on the fringe of Christianity. I love him because he can’t be pigeonholed into any particular denominational or theological bent, and he always seems to piss mainstream conservative Christians off. I know I shouldn’t like that, but I do find it amusing.
Anyways, if you have not listened closely to the words on their latest album, No Line on the Horizon, you’re really missing out on some incredible lyrics. This album is so overtly “Christian” that I don’t know how U2 gets away with it. If you doubt me, then I’ll just throw out a little portion of the song Magnificent:
Justified till we die
You and I will magnify
Oh, the magnificent
I hate when I ramble so I need to get to the point.

Brian Ward was, until recently, the middle school pastor at Irving Bible Church. The ministry is called Transit. That's his blog.
Recently decided to move his family back closer to his extended family in Georgia. He's a pretty great guy and all the students are mourning.
