Posted by Regi Campbell on September 19, 2019

A high percentage of human conflict starts when we guess at people’s motives and get it wrong. My favorite Brené Brown story is about this very thing. Her husband opens the refrigerator and mumbles, “There’s nothing to eat in here.” Working in the next room, she assumes he’s complaining that she hasn’t been a good…

You Are a Winner!

Posted by Regi Campbell on September 16, 2019

We all want to win. Including the golfers that are teeing off this morning at the 2019 Radical Mentoring Golf Classic (depending on when you read this, they may even be playing right now).

The elders at North Point Community Church pray over sick people when asked. I’ve participated in many of these prayer sessions as an elder.

Posted by Regi Campbell on September 9, 2019

Years ago, I heard a motivational speech by Lou Holtz, the famous football coach. He said there are three questions everyone should ask about their leaders . . . Can I trust him? Does he know what he’s talking about? Does he care about me? If you’re an alliteration guy or you want extra credit,…

To live on purpose, I have to decide what purpose is . . . for me. Looking back over years of trying to figure this out, five significant moments helped me move forward. Moment 1 – “It’s not about me” – On the very first page of Rick Warren’s book The Purpose Driven Life, he…

Transactional Faith

Posted by Regi Campbell on August 26, 2019

I’m an evangelical. I want everyone to find and follow Jesus. I believe He’s a choice you can make, not an inherited relationship that’s handed down from your parents, your church, or your christening as a baby. Salvation is an invitation you can accept. (Calvinists and Reformed peeps . . . please cut me some…

I’ll bet the word “follow” is used a billion times more today than it was ten years ago, before Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Back then, we played games like follow the leader.
