INSPIRATION MONDAY with VIDEO: Mike Yaconelli

Today I wanted to share with you some clips of one of my favorite speakers/authors, the late Mike Yaconelli. Mike was the founder of Youth Specialities and also founded the Christian satire magazine The Door. I saw him a few times at the National Youth Workers Convention, which he led, and he always inspired me. His books Dangerous Wonder and Messy Spirituality have shaped my thinking about faith and God more than any other books besides The Bible. He was taken from us much too early but God must have wanted him home more than he wanted him here.

I hope you find his wit and pointed comments here to inspire you to think outside of corporate versions of Christianity currently perpetrated by many churches today. Leave your comments below or on FaceBook! See ya tomorrow.
