Beauty in Ugly Things

IN THE ARTICLE "Beauty Out of Ugly Things" (March-April 2001), Kimberly Burge speaks eloquently of one of the greatest bands in rock history, U2. As U2 so beautifully states in words and music, Christ is not simply found in the pages of scripture or in the walls of churches but is indeed a part of every aspect of life on Earth. U2's music helps us recognize that to be loved and healed, we need to see the beauty in ugly things. We need to know there is hope beyond the scarring we inflict upon each other and the Earth. What better way is there for us to see this hope realized but through justice, hope, and love as found in the music of U2?
