A fascinating conversation with Bono about his faith:
With spontaneous eloquence, he said being a worship leader must be “the highest of all art forms, to worship and call people into the presence of God.”
Clearly aware of the ironies of his new faith-based campaign, Bono admitted, “If me 10 years ago would have heard me say what I said today, I wouldn’t believe me.”
Bono spent nearly 45 minutes with us and loosened up a lot as the conversation went on. He would have kept going, but his handlers cut the session off. He was thoughtful and candid, a performer who didn’t appear to be performing. And he was enormously compelling, especially when he described the people he has met in his travels in Africa who put real “flesh and bones” on the purpose of his campaign.
