one of the songs I find myself humming, often.
Written by this man.
Katie introduced me to his music,
which I am forever grateful.
His songs have ALWAYS helped me,
when going thru hard times.
I watched “Ragamuffin” – the life of Rich Mullins last night with Kurt.
“He lived honestly and did not conform.”
He never knew how much he made,
he didn’t want to know.
His accountant donated the majority of his money to churches and charities.
I also learned he died 5 months to the day after my Dad in 1997.
That summer the world lost Mother Theresa and Princess Di too.
What a year.
The year I graduated from college.
on my Faceook memories –
at my aunt’s church,
the assistant pastor was preaching:
“Pharisees had it all right doctrinally,
they looked in the face of Jesus Christ and rejected Him.”
– Pastor Steve Moreno
There’s live-scenes of Mullins
at his concerts
during the credits.
He reminds the audience that going to church is better than buying a ticket to a concert. “They love u and care for you.”
I can’t believe he died in Peoria, IL…
at age 41.
I was 41 and 1/2 years old, to the day, the night I watched the movie about his life…
I sense there is something You want me to do, to be… I will do my best to obey.
I love You.
He was born October 21,
I watched the movie about his life on the 22nd.
He would have been 60 his year.
Did they ever release his Jesus album?
He wrote and recorded
in his boyhood church (the songs for it) before he died.
Not in a studio.
I still cry whenever I hear Michael W. Smith sing his songs… crying now. Cried last night watching the movie.
I found this while researching:
Michael W. Smith said of Mullins, “His life and music has impacted me more than anyone I know.”
God is good.
I’d like to bake today too.
I think God has called each of us
to live for Him
to fulfill the call He has on our lives
to spread the Word about Him.
In my research I found more I want to see and hear:
a video documenting Mullins’s life,
includes the testimonies of hundreds of people,
from Colombian and Navajo Children
to pastors and pop musicians,
who were deeply touched by time spent with him.
Recently Myrrh records released
The Jesus Record.
It features ten demos recorded by Rich in an abandoned church just nine days before his death.”
Katie says this record is one of her favorites.
She’s been listening to him since high school,
never saw him live.
