Thoughts On the Christian Witness and Music of Rich Mullins

Years ago I listened to a variety of Christian artists--Michael W. Smith, Steven Curtis Chapman, Amy Grant, Wayne Watson, Leon Patillo among others. At one point, though, I discovered Rich Mullins' music, and for me his songs brought everything down to the basics of living a genuine faith in God. I was just reaching midlife at that point and perhaps seeking to simplify in general, but his songs somehow clarify and bring to a very real level what it means to love Christ. I read a biography about him and saw that he had lived in the same humble manner and with the deep love for God his songs express. All I can say is I'm grateful for his ongoing "reminders" in my life, and I look forward to meeting this Christian brother in heaven.

Rich Mullins was, and I think even though he is gone, still is a very great songwriter and had strong passion to love God. He has touched the hearts of so many people, that it makes me so happy whenever I see one more person who appreciates him and his music and influence.
