ONE SERVES ONESELF BEST BY SERVING OTHERS FIRST - Thought For The Day BBCGMU - 4.5.18

TOMORROW IN FITZROY - 6.5.18

Fitzroy 3

On the opening nights of their brand new tour U2 have been singing that Love Is All That We Have Left and that Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way. 

In the morning (11am) in Fitzroy we will be looking at that "love" but through the eyes of the apostle John and Jesus' final teaching to his disciples before the cross. Last week we thinking of what "abiding" in Jesus meant. Now we are asking how the fruit of that abiding works it's way out from the disciples to the world through love. Love not as a sentimental idea but as sacrificial giving - "Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends."

Peter Greer will sing Love Is All We Have Left and we will ask how we make sure that love wins!

As it is a Bank Holiday weekend there is no evening event.

Given U2’s intervention this week encouraging voters in the South to vote to repeal the 8th amendment to the Irish constitution which will essentiallyl amount to abortion on demand, I’d say irony must run a close second? I don’t think this band has to say to a practising Christian anymore, which disappoints me as a life-long fan.

Hard read for authentic U2 fans, masterfully written: https://www.firstthings.com/web-exclusives/2018/05/how-u2-betrayed-rock-n-roll

Brendan. Great link to a great article. Definitely time for Christians to speak out against bono and U2. Jesus didn't defend hypocrites, neither should we.

To quote the article “Repeal” is about empowering the strong over the weak, the strident and demanding over the silent and docile."

And on U2, its early truth-telling gradually giving way to a jostling for liberal kudos."

Cutting but true.

Care to comment back Stocki. Can you lay down U2 never mind your life?
