The last few years God has been moving me in new directions. He’s been challenging my perspectives, priorities and approach to youth ministry. Yesterday a fellow youth worker, Kevin, gave me a movie to watch to see if I thought it would be good to show to his small group students.

I have, once again, been destroyed and challenged.

This movie is a few years old, but please take 2 hours of your time to watch the movie Ragamuffin. It’s the life story of Rich Mullins. In the movie, he encounters Brennan Manning, author of Rafamuffin Gospel a couple of times, thus the theme and title of the movie.

You will come away from this movie evaluating what’s really important in various areas of your life and impaled by the desire to focus on what really matters from an approach you probably won’t expect.
