Before I explain the title of this post, let me set up this video.
This last year, Rich Mullins, the late singer-songwriter became one of my heroes. Yes, I’m referring to the guy who wrote “Awesome God.” Growing up, I was never a huge fan of his music, but after I read his biography, I realized he embodied nearly everything I’m chasing after.
He was a humble man who encoutered the fierce and fiery love of God and from that place he produced great art (for his time). He loved his neighbor deeply and was never concerned with impressing people. He was a man that could not fit easily into categories.
With that said, this video clip is Rich talking in a moment of vulnerability just before he sings his song “Step by Step”. Here, he talks about the love of God and the kind of art God makes.
If you don’t have time to watch this video, here’s a little excerpt you can read.
