Mike Yaconnelli and Greenbelt Festival.

Mike Yaconnelli 
Mike was someone who stuck with the Greenbelt Festival 
in thick and thin. 
He saw in it a sign of the Kingdom.

He described one Sunday morning Greenbelt communion service:

"I was moved to tears just looking over the crowd and seeing black, white, old, young, punker, straight, children, elderly, 
worshipping God in total unity. 
For ninety minutes, the real world of hatred, prejudice, 
pettiness, and selfishness were forgotten. 
We were the invisible Church made visible for an instant, 
and it was truly overwhelming. 
For a few fleeting moments I got a glimpse of what heaven 
will be like and I shall never forget it."
