Ragamuffin – The Movie

ann : April 16, 2014 4:23 pm : Ann D'Alessandro, Staff Pages


‘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.

Towards the end of his life he encountered a love deeper than he had ever known dying tragically in a car accident at age 41.  (from http://ragamuffinthemovie.com)

**Everyone is encouraged to bring an unwanted pair of used shoes to donate to Lancaster Teen Challenge. Support micro enterprise ventures in developing nations and keep old shoes out of local landfills.

Ragamuffin Movie Tour: The True Story of Rich Mullins on Sunday, April 27th at 7:30PM at The Junction Center Tent in Manheim.  For tickets and more information 717-459-3701 or http://www.thejunctioncenter.com/
