General Convention: U2charist and Lori hangs out with Bono

ANAHEIM -- We attended Thursday evening a "U2charist," which is a Eucharist combined with the loud music of U2. Most of these are done by playing U2 CDs, but for this event the Diocese of California found a Bono impersonator (see photo taken in the exhibit hall). He sang well but the real Bono probably has nothing to worry about.

The sermon was by the Rev. Mike Kinman, now the provost of the Cathedral in St. Louis and the former executive director of Episcopalians for Global Reconciliation. He told some very moving stories about how everyday people have made a huge impact in the poorest regions of the world.

Convention resumes later with one final legislative push. More later...
