DVD GIVEAWAY and Review of Ragamuffin

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.

  Singer and songwriter Richard Wayne :Rich” Mullins was best known for his worship song “Awesome God” which has been embraced as modern classics by many Christians. His music has been covered by many artists, including Caedmon’s Call, Amy Grant, Jars of Clay, Michael W. Smith, Third Day, John Tesh, and Hillsong United. Mullins first solo hit, “Awesome God,” appeared on his third album and brought his music to a wider audience. Rich Mullins was inducted into the Hall of Fame by the Gospel Music Association on April 29, 2014.

   Ragamuffin is based on the life of Rich Mullins. He wrote and sang many wonderful songs. His most famous in my eyes is his song Awesome God.
  This story is very, very interesting and at the same time very sad. He loved the Lord, but also fought against things that brought him down. He didn’t feel loved and his Dad said things to him that really upset and hurt him throughout his life.
   I like how he never put people down, because he knew that God loves you even when you do something wrong. He also knew that God doesn’t care if you don’t wear a certain kind of clothes or your hair and bread weren’t always in place.
   This DVD is 2 ½ hours long and I just loved it all. It kept my interest all of the way through and made me realize even though people may be in music or singing and praising the Lord they may not always be happy or have a happy life.
  Very good, interesting DVD that I highly recommend. I know you would love to own it and watch it over and over.

Thank You Connie Sue Larson (csthankful) for sharing this opportunity to give a shout out to the tribute of the work God gave Rich Mullin to do. I recently was blessed to view the HOMELESS video on YouTube and I am excited that I will soon have an opportunity to see the Ragamuffin DVD.

Pastor Dave from Calvary Chapel of Barstow is always reminding us we are all different Platoon's in the same Army and our Leader is Christ. I think Rich would applaud that message.
