here is a newly released DVD called ragamuffin based on the life of recording artist Rich Mullins.
i had heard a few things about Rich Mullins that peaked my interest over the years so i was excited to learn more about him. wow.
"in the end it won't matter if you have a few scars, but it will matter if you didn't LIVE." ~Rich Mullins
what would make a recording artist donate most of his earnings to churches and charity? why was he never married? what was in his heart to write songs that touched so many people?
rich was raised on a farm and of course was expected by his father to take it over one day. that was not what the Lord had planned for him however and the dad had a hard time accepting that. in fact, he was downright mean. as a child he tried to conform to what his dad expected but it didn't work. he was an artistic genius.
rich never heard or felt that his dad loved him so how could he accept the love of his Abba Father in heaven?
he was broken. he was tired of hypocrisy in the church. he wanted to be himself. he was a struggling addict. yes, that's right. he had some issues to work through. he was lonely.
one things stand true. God uses broken people. he uses their hurts and experiences to bless and help others. rich mullins is no different.
do you assume that once an artist makes it to nashville all their heartache and troubles disappear? no...they follow them and multiply.
this is a raw and honest movie about rich mullins and the process of healing he went through. he stood up for what he believed even when the crowd or even his producers were opposed.
and it was the love of others that showed him the love of His Father.
this is a great movie and will definitely give you points to ponder. mountain man and i enjoyed it greatly. it is a bit dramatic with mild language, alcoholism and his mean father so it may not be suitable for your children.
and now...you have a chance to win a free copy of the movie ragamuffin!
