A Ragamuffin’s Creed

I recently watched Ragamuffin: The True Story of Rich MullinsMullins was a musical prodigy who rose to fame in the Contemporary Christian Music scene in the 80s and 90s. Mullins confrontational and controversial style and approach to music made him some what of a “bad boy” in the CCM culture. Eventually, Mullins walked away from it all to minister on a Navajo reservation before he died in 1997. I highly recommend the film if you want an inside look at Mullins’ faith journey, his cultural influence, his sin struggles, and his vision for authentic Christianity.

One of Mullins’s most well-known songs is “Creed,” a musical rendition of the Apostles’ Creed with an added original chorus. If you don’t know the Apostles’ Creed, this song will help you learn it! I sing this to our daughters often at bedtime. Below is a wonderful cover of the song by Third Day and Brandon Heath. Enjoy–and then go watch Ragamuffin (it is available on Netflix).
