What is Foolish?
Well, we could start with: what is wisdom?
This week we absorb the wisdom of… Bono. Take in these actual quotes from the lead singer of U2:
“Great music is written by people who are either running toward or away from God.”
“Look, I’m sick of Bono and I AM Bono.”
“Religion can be the enemy of God. It’s often what happens when God, like Elvis, has left the building. A list of instructions where there was once conviction; dogma where once people just did it; a congregation led by a man where once they were led by the Holy Spirit. Discipline replacing discipleship.”
“I’m not in a position to be seen as a spokesman for a generation. I mean, how can you be a spokesman of a generation if you’ve nothing to say, other than ‘Help!’”
“But I’d be in big trouble if Karma was going to finally be my judge. I’d be in deep s — . It doesn’t excuse my mistakes, but I’m holding out for Grace.”
