    The Yaconelli Legacy edition of Youthworker arrived this morning. Amid the chaos of change a fine reminder of what this crazy ride's about:

    I want my crippled soul to escape the cold and sterile spirituality of a religion where only the perfect nondisabled get in. I want to lurch forward to Jesus, where the unwelcome receive welcome and the unqualified get qualified. I want to hear Jesus tell me I can dance when everyone says I can't. I want to hear Jesus walk over and whisper to this handicapped, messy Christian, "Do you want to dance?" - Mike Yaconelli, from Messy Spirituality.
