Less to Fear Than Anybody

Posted by Regi Campbell on May 20, 2019

So, a kid goes to a rock-climbing place for a birthday party. His dad watches as the staff puts his son in the harness and tightens it up. The belay rope is attached and checked. The staff guy is an experienced rock climber . . . you know because he has long hair and a…

What Do I Expect From God?

Posted by Regi Campbell on May 16, 2019

You can’t receive love from someone you don’t trust. Think about it. If I don’t trust you, how can I possibly believe you when they say you love me? Even when you do something loving, I’ll be suspicious of your motives if I don’t trust you. Trust breaks down when people don’t do what we…

Kids and Adopted Kids

Posted by Regi Campbell on May 13, 2019

So, I see a pontoon boat on the pond beyond my house. In it are five kids along with a couple of guys. As they draw closer, I notice it’s three black kids, two white kids, and two white dads. It’s a good guess that an adoption occurred somewhere! These couples wanted more kids, but…

Last month, I took my grandson Aidan to Washington, D.C. for a few days. I couldn’t wait to get to the National Air and Space Museum so I could show him the groundbreaking spaceships of history and of my childhood. When we came to Friendship 7, I was taken aback. Right there, 20 feet away…

Mentoring Mythbusters: The Ripple Effect (20,000 by 2020)

Posted by Kevin Harris on May 6, 2019

Over the last few years, our team has talked internally about the goal of seeing 20,000 men mentored by the end of 2020. We’ve discussed it with our board and at our annual Mentor Summit, and tracked it through conversations with our church partners. But before I tell you where we stand, I want to…

The Power of a Good ‘No’

Posted by Regi Campbell on May 2, 2019

Last week, I wrote about ‘letting your yes be yes’ and how standing at the fork in the road between ‘yes’ and ‘no’ can be the beginning of evil. But what about a good old fashioned, definitive, downward voice-inflected no? Saying no and meaning it is one of the most freeing things a person can…

Anything Beyond This Comes from the Evil One

Posted by Regi Campbell on April 29, 2019

This is the second of two posts looking at Matthew 5:37. The first was about how our struggle to say yes or no and mean it ultimately comes down to trust. In this post, let’s look closer at the second half of the verse, “anything beyond this comes from the evil one.” I’ve always been…

Yes or No

Posted by Regi Campbell on April 25, 2019

When I began putting Radical Mentoring together, I wanted to make it about real life . . . about the things we do and deal with every day. Early on, the subject of decision-making went on the list. I realized there are two dimensions . . . decision-making and decisiveness. Coming to a good decision…

The Mystery of Motives

Posted by Regi Campbell on April 22, 2019

A motive is “a reason for doing something.” Notice it says a reason, not the reason. We, humans, are complicated rascals. We almost always act with multiple motives. Even when we just want to pass along information, our words can give away our feelings. In addition to our words, our body language, voice intonation, and…

To Extend the Union . . .

Posted by Regi Campbell on April 18, 2019

So why did God create humankind? What was his purpose? The Westminster Shorter Catechism says, “Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever.” The Purpose Driven Life says, “it begins with God, but it’s not about you,” and then goes on to talk about loving and serving others. Ask a hundred…
