Ragamuffin DVD: review and giveaway

When I was asked to review Ragamuffin which was based on the life of Rich Mullins I realized that I really didn’t know who he was until I found out he had written some of my favorite worship songs such as “Awesome God.”  He also write some of the Amy Grant songs that helped me survive through my teen years as a Christian as well as for other Christian artists.

RAGAMUFFIN is based on the life of Rich Mullins, a musical prodigy who rose to Christian music fame and fortune only to walk away and live on a Navajo reservation. An artistic genius, raised on a tree farm in Indiana by a callous father, Rich wrestled all of his life with the brokenness and crippling insecurity born of his childhood. A lover of Jesus and a rebel in the church, Rich refused to let his struggles with his own darkness tear him away from a God he was determined to love. As he struggled with success in Nashville and depression in Wichita, Rich desired most of all to live a life of honest and reckless faith amidst a culture of religion and conformity.
I was inspired by this movie because I have often struggled with dealing with the trap of religion that we as Christians are often subjected to from various sources in today’s society. Sadly, we see this often in our churches and is one of the reasons so many are turned away from Christ. Rich Mullins’ story is one both of inspiration and one that also that leads you to reflect and dig deep into your own personal relationship with Christ. One of my favorite lines in the film was when the Dad of one of Rich’s friends told him that holiness was not about finding the right place and doing the right thing but it is really about ” loving God in the moment.”
