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…

Mentor Mythbusters: No Time for Stories

Posted by Kevin Harris on July 1, 2019

Over the last few months, I’ve been asked more than once if the Story Retreat matters. I hear things like, “My men are busy . . .” “We don’t have time to get out of town . . .” Over the last few months, I’ve also heard from leaders that the Story Retreat was the…

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…

The Golden Buddha

Posted by Kevin Harris on June 20, 2019

In a remote village in Thailand stood a 10-foot golden Buddha statue . . . the largest in the world. In the late 18th century, during the Burmese invasion of Thailand, the village monks covered the figure in mud fearing the invaders would steal the statue. Unfortunately, the monks died in the invasion, and the…

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…

To the few dads who’ve never said “I love you” to their sons . . .  I address this to ‘the few’ because the kinds of dads who read these posts are probably not the ones who never tell their sons they love them. But just in case you’re one of those, listen to what…

Three Levels of Love

Posted by Regi Campbell on June 10, 2019

What if throughout our spiritual journey, God leads us through three levels of love? When I first engaged with Him, I was told to love others because Jesus loves me. If others were going to see and feel God’s love, it would be because I obeyed Him and loved others. Love was what I was…
