Most of you know that I’m something of a Christian music nut. One of my favorites, ever since hearing part of his first single on the radio in 1985, is the late Rich Mullins. He was a different kind of artist. Like Keith Green before him, Rich’s words rang with authenticity, humility, and unflinching honesty. Lots of people make music, but Rich put truth to song. He wasn’t just a singer/songwriter, either…he lived what he believed.
Recently, a friend went through a traumatic situation. She’s still having trouble dealing with the emotional fallout from that life-changing day. She commented that those who care for others often have nobody to confide in, and it occurred to me that this song might be particularly meaningful for her.
