U2's Window In The Skies makes it onto's MixTape's 1st (of 4) MixTape song was one that certainly didn't make my list. The song for this week's easter sermon series was Window in the Skies by U2 off the 2006 best of cd, U218 Singles which has classic tracks on it (Sunday Bloody Sunday, Pride, Beautiful Day, etc) in addition to two new songs, including "Window in the Skies," U2's final track on the album.

Below is the U2 music video of the new song. In the sermon, also posted below as a link, Craig Groeschel, teaches a sermon using this U2 song along side bible passages as his "text" for Easter Sunday. It's certainly worth a listen.

This song, did not make my top ten or runner's up list for predicted songs (or any commenters list). Yet, I don't really think of this song as one of today's hot hits, although of course the influence of Bono and u2 over the decades is undeniable. At least twice in the teaching, Craig prophetically mentions that the song, not popular yet, "will be." (So far, this song has only peaked at 26 on Billboard's Hot Adult Top 40 charts, and 32 on their Hot Modern Rock Tracks). (Craig, I will be watching to see if this song popularity increases.)

I you to watch the teaching below, and to express your thoughts in the comments below.

That is an interesting concept, taking music like that and applying it in a sermon.

I have to admit I didn't know that much about until I saw this.

Thanks for sharing.

No Van Halen with Diamond Dave? I'm disappointed.
