How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb

So I just purchased the new U2 album, and I must say that I am in love with it. This album has a depth of emotion that I haven’t heard in popular music for a long time.

As a way to get my self in the mode for this new album I listened to every u2 album, and I came to a shocking realization. All That You Can’t Leave Behind is really not a great album. Yes it has a lot of great songs, but it lacks a certain unifying quality to all the songs, “New York”, “Peace on Earth” and “Wild Honey” stand out as tracks that are just so different from the rest of the album that it diminishes the flow of listening. They are not bad songs but they just don’t fit.

I am pleased to say that Atomic Bomb does not have that problem, the band really put together a great unified album that tugs at the heart and soul of the listener.

Right of the top I knew this album was going to be great even if Bono can’t count.

Now I can’t wait for the Tour that I am going to make every effort to attend.

Resignation

Well it’s out in the open now. I am resigning my current youth pastor position and I will be embarking on a journey that is completely unknown to me. On one hand I am really excited, on the other I am quite anxious about what on earth I am going to do. I feel a lot like Abraham going to a place he didn’t know because he decided that following God is better than being comfortable.

I feel God is pulling me into a new place, and I think he is going to do a lot of work in my spirit refining me and reminding me of what he has called me to, and giving me bigger dreams and just filling my passion up again. I am really, really excited. I know that where ever I end up God will be able to use me to build his kingdom.

Exciting stuff.
