Diocese of Niagara: Michael Bird still hasn’t found what he’s looking for

Filed under: Diocese of Niagara — David Jenkins @ 4:13 pm

In a recent confirmation service in Christ’s Church Cathedral, Hamilton one of the songs was U2’s “I still haven’t found whabird-bonot I’m looking for”

A fitting tribute to the state of Christian belief in the diocese. As Bono told Rolling Stone, ” ‘I still haven’t found What I’m Looking For’ is an anthem of doubt more than faith”.

What song could be more appropriate for welcoming a new member into an apostate diocese.



  1. For a rock band to write lyrics that sre profoundly spiritual is encouraging. For a Bishop to be in the same space is a tragedy for the faith.

  2. No longer are these “children playing with matches in a room full of dynamite” but willful brats who have lit the wick and are waiting to see what happens.
