Rock (and Roll) of Ages

Ordinary, boring, run-of-the-mill worship songs just not cutting it? Try spicing things up with the music of U2! From a recent article:
    The Pope may have condemned rock music as "anti-religion" but the Church of England has announced it is to use the songs of a global supergroup in an effort to boost congregations.

    The first "U2-charist" in England, an adapted Holy Communion service that uses the Irish rock group's best-selling songs in place of hymns, is to be staged at a Lincoln church in May.

    A live band will play U2 classics such as "Mysterious Ways" and "Beautiful Day" as worshippers sing along with lyrics which will appear on screen at St. Swithin's parish church in the town centre.
What about classic U2 songs like "Sunday Bloody Sunday," "Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses," "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me," or "Trash, Trampoline, and the Party Girl"? Seems to me those would be perfect worship songs for any denomination. Now all that's left to do is replace the wine with J├Ągermeister and the bread with pot-laced brownies and we'll have a church any sinner can feel comfortable in!

I tried to visit that church one Sunday, but I couldn't find it because the street had no name.
