I don’t usually post on Saturdays, but I thought I’d make an exception today. On this day twelve years ago, Rich Mullins died in a car accident. One of my all-time favorite musicians, Mullins was a contemporary Christian artist who was cut from a different mold than most modern Christian musicians. He is mostly known for his (overplayed) “Awesome God” but that song does not really reflect his musical tastes.
Mullins had a deep faith and an earnestness that came through in his music. And he most definitely practiced what he preached – he gave away almost all his money to various causes and only lived on a working man’s salary.
Here are a few of his songs on YouTube, but Rich was always best live (I was fortunate enough to see him twice in concert):
Take a moment today to pray for the repose of the soul of this deeply Christian man.
