Quote:
Beneath the noise
Below the din
I hear a voice
It’s whispering
In science and in medicine
"I was a stranger
You took me in”
Right now this has touched me deeply. This is the call to all of the believers in the science or medical fields. Speak and do love.

Mark

Almost everyone of Bono's lyrics has a Bible tinge to it.

Some of my favorites are:

We're ONE, but we're not the same. We get to carry each other.

It's not what you're dreaming, it's what you're gonna do.

and then. of course, there is the entire song of "ISHFWILF".

"Crumbs from Your Table" is also talking about Christ's call to extend mercy and forgiveness to others and to work for Justice for the poor and forgotten.

All GREAT IDEAS that I try to incorporate into my daily life.

Great thread, Scarlet Lady.

YOUR LOVE IS TEACHING ME HOW TO KNEEL....

Crumbs From Your Table is a warning shot to Christianity to wake up from it's slumber and answer to the new leprosy of this world, AIDS!

Wake up!

"Yahweh, Yahweh / I'm still waiting for the dawn."

I like that one a lot, because it's a really sad and painful, yet necessary commentary on the state of the world today. I've always felt that Jesus' message was far ahead of the times in which he lived, but what I really struggle with on a daily basis is that his message of love and forgiveness for your neighbour is something that really isn't being practiced today by the world as a whole.

I believe people are fundamentally good people, I just wish that as a group we would do better to find a common goal of lovingkindness and mercy for one another.

All of Until the end of the world. The last supper through Judas's eyes and the emotions he felt as he betrayed his lord.

I disagree with this. Not so much just the christians. I consider it a message to the masses to answer the call and do more as a whole to curb the spread of AIDS.

One of my favorite songs in this vein of songwriting is "Falling at Your Feet" from the MDH Soundtrack.

I love the lines "How to simply be/Don't know when to wait/Explain simplicity/In whom shall I trust?/How might I be still?
Teach me to surrender/Not my will, THY will…"
