Mentoring Mythbusters: Why I Don’t Call My Mentees

Posted by Regi Campbell on August 5, 2019

A few of the guys I’ve mentored have gotten their feelings hurt because I don’t call them. I could hide behind “I’m swamped” or “I’ve got a lot of mentees and not enough time to go around” . . . but I don’t. Truth is they have to call me. There’s a purpose here. Actually, there are…

Defining Normal

Posted by Regi Campbell on August 1, 2019

Mentoring young husbands and fathers gives me the chance to hear lots of people’s stories. I love guys in their early 30’s. They’re young and energetic, yet they’ve begun to know what they don’t know. One of the biggest things they have to decide is how they will define normal for themselves and their families. Will…

The C-word and a Prayer Request

If my health records were still on paper, the stack would resemble what you might find in the office of a professor grading term papers. I won’t begin to list all the stuff this old body’s been through. Of course, the biggest deal was my lung transplant in November 2015, which restored my vitality and…

The Personal Theology Statement (Part 2)

Posted by Regi Campbell on July 15, 2019

In my last post, I introduced you to the Personal Theology Statement and challenged you to write one for yourself.  I’m going to put myself at great personal risk and share mine here. Please . . . I don’t intend to create a theological battle. I’m not trying to convince you that my theology is…

The Personal Theology Statement (Part 1)

Posted by Regi Campbell on July 11, 2019

I lived for years with a distorted view of God and some really poor theology, in part, because I never really confronted what I truly believed and what I didn’t. And now it’s become a burden as I see the same thing in others all the time. People stay away from God because He didn’t…

Faith vs. Trust

Posted by Regi Campbell on July 8, 2019

As I spoke with a friend the other day, these words came out of my mouth . . . “I’m leaning hard on my faith.” I paused and thought. “Man, that puts a lot of pressure on my faith,” which, in a way, puts a lot of pressure on me. I don’t know about you,…

Names

Posted by Regi Campbell on July 4, 2019

I’ve never liked my name. Maybe it’s because it was so different from everyone else in my totally segregated, South Carolina elementary school. Or maybe because it was spelled weird . . . Regi. Anyone else would have spelled it phonetically R-e-g-g-i-e. But not my parents. I got half of Reginald. R-e-g-i. Maybe it was…

How the Devil Works

Posted by Regi Campbell on June 27, 2019

We don’t talk much about Satan these days. It’s easy to ignore or discard things we don’t understand, especially unpleasant, scary things. Because books, movies, and TV shows have put such an outlandish picture in our heads, it’s easier not to think about the devil than to try and understand him. One of the first…

Something’s Broken

Posted by Regi Campbell on June 24, 2019

In today’s post-modern culture, people are questioning everything. The need for God is stronger than ever, yet the way we speak with people far away from God seems philosophical and even irrelevant. Maybe there’s a more direct, compelling way to get people’s attention – a way to surface their need for God and bring awareness…

What’s Your Mountain?

Posted by Regi Campbell on June 17, 2019

Confession . . . I’ve always had heartburn over Jesus’ promise in Mark 11:23 that I can instruct a mountain to “be taken up and thrown into the sea,” and if I believe and “[do] not doubt in [my] heart,” “it will come to pass.” Do people with super-strong faith have that kind of power…
