Felt The Healing Fingertips?


Using U2's soul-searching anthems in place of traditional hymns during the service, First Presbyterian Church intends to lure younger Christians back into the pews and invigorate the proceedings. Created by Sarah Dylan Breuer back in 2004 in Maryland, churches across the country picked up on the idea and it has become quite the fundraiser. First Presbyterian donates collections from the service to Cooperative Housing Foundation International, a fav of Bono's campaign to provide aid to Darfur. The church's own Revelation Band performs the hits "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" and "One."

That doesn't lure me. That Jesus-freaks me out.
