Saw this movie- Ragamuffin– recently. It is about the life of Rich Mullins. I loved it. Now, I am not a huge movie person- but I love music. So a movie about Rich Mullins, one of my favorite Christian artists, entertained me- and it moved me. I never knew how he suffered emotionally and relationally (two forms of suffering I can honestly identify with), and I never knew what grace was his in Christ.
After watching the movie- I began to think that, perhaps, the Lord had used Rich’s music to start to prepare my soul for more of a reformed understanding of the sovereignty of God. I have been listening to him since I was 12 years old, even before I knew the Lord. It is a deep movie- it has “thematic elements”- but I liked it. I’ve posted the trailer below. As for the song- it is one of my favorite Rich Mullins pieces: The Love of God.
