is the U2charist a gimmick?

Depends on how you use it, I'd say. Ideally, the focus on God's mission of justice for the poor and the care-full and thoughtful use of music and musical idioms that are meaningful to the congregation that a good U2charist reflects should be a consistent feature in worship, not a one-time or very occasional gimmick. But, to paraphrase my hero St. Paul, if hunger for a gimmick leads to the proclamation of Christ and Christ's mission, I'm happy.
