WMCN staff recently had the opportunity to see “Ragamuffin”, the newly released movie based on the life of Christian musician, Rich Mullins.
The film begins with a young Mullins living on a farm, rejected and unloved by a father he admired. It also shows how as a child he discovered his God given gift and love of music.
It follows his life and his struggles, struggles that often stemmed from memories of never being able to please his father.
The movie is not a sugar-coated version of his life. It shows his dark side and his battle with alcohol. But it also tells of his courage and how he was never afraid to share what was on his heart. It shows his deep desire to draw closer to his God.
The life of Rich Mullins is a story of God’s love for us, broken as we are.
“Ragamuffin” will be available for sale beginning May 6, exclusively through Walmart stores.
You can watch the trailer here.
