I was first introduced to Rich Mullins at children's camp one year in Glen Rose, Texas. During one of the worship sets some band sang the song “Our God is An Awesome God”. Now that I think back I am pretty certain that they probably played the track and we all sang along with it. What a song though. Do you remember that song?
Stop now and sing it in your head.
Then as I got a bit older I got a hold of Rich's album THE WORLD AS BEST AS I REMEMBER IT and I played the heck out of that album. In fact I still have that album on my shuffle list and listen to it often. That was one of the first Christian albums I ever loved. Something about his lyrics ministered to my soul for years. They are still ministering to my soul to this day.
In the opening 10 minutes of the new movie RAGAMUFFIN, which is based on Rich Mullins life, he says that he didn't become a Christian by someone explaining the nuts and bolts of Christianity to him, but yet he became a Christian by people being the nuts and bolts of Christianity to him. I was hooked from then on to this movie.
Rich was a trailblazer in the Christian music industry, and a songwriter who truly wanted to honor Jesus with his life and his words and didn't want to just make a buck off of Jesus' name. I literally cried in the middle of this movie and told Aaron I want to be just like Rich Mullins. I want to love Jesus more than I desire fame or recognition. Rich knew what mattered.
I was super blessed to get a DVD of this movie to watch and I have one to give away to one of you guys! Aaron and I LOVED this movie and I think that you will too!
You can buy this film on itunes or WalMart. Make a movie night out of it, you'll enjoy learning more about his life, I promise.
