May the souls of the faithful departed
through the mercy of God
rest in peace.
Ten years ago today, Rich Mullins died in a car accident.
I didn't meet the music of Rich Mullins until about four years after he died (how had I missed him in those nine years of being a Christian?)
The first time I heard him, I fell instantly in love with the sound, the depth of his lyrics and the sweet, sacramental sense that permeated his later music.
One of my favorite of his songs is "The Love of God":
There's a wideness in God's mercySome links worth looking at:
I cannot find in my own
And He keeps His fire burning
to melt this heart of stone
keeps me aching with a yearning
keeps me glad to have been caught
in the wreckless raging fury
that they call the love of God
Calling Out Your Name
