Greetings from the City of Brotherly Love
« on: February 23, 2009, 05:16:23 PM »
Howdy!

My name is Sara, and I've been a U2 fan since 1983, when I was in eighth grade. 

I'm an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church, the wife of an ordained minister, and the mother of one son.

I've recently moved to Philadelphia, having lived in Texas for six years.

I know I'm not the only one who identifies with the emotional and spiritual expressions found in U2's albums.  Most recently, the song "Kite" has driven me to tears with recollections of my last serious conversation with my father. 

As a pastor, I've used U2's music on a number of occasions, and have lead a listening group/Bible Study on the music of U2.

I've never been to see the band live, but it has been a goal of mine for twenty-five years now.  I've always been too poor or too far away.  I think my dream will come true sometime in the next couple of years, hooray!  Maybe even more than once, with luck.

I've lurked in the forum anonomously for some time, and only now have registered.  It's good to be among you!

Sara
