My Spiritual Heroes: Mike Yaconelli

I instantly fell in love with Mike Yaconelli the first time I heard him speak.  I attended several National Youth Workers Conventions where he held court in the main sessions and led an early morning Bible Study every day.  His books (Messy Spirituality and Dangerous Wonder) have shaped my own spiritual philosophies.  He left us too soon, but luckily we have clips like this to remind us of his genius work.
