Guilt, Conviction, and Freedom

Posted by Regi Campbell on July 9, 2018

After watching 10 episodes of The Staircase on Netflix, my wife and I feel like lawyers. Or jurors. We’ve been schooled in the difference between “guilty” and “not guilty” and a lot of other legal stuff. Did you realize our legal system never says someone is innocent . . . just that there’s enough evidence…

Six Months In . . . Just Like That

Posted by Regi Campbell on July 5, 2018

Check your calendar. The 4th of July was yesterday. June 30th has come and gone. The first six months of 2018 are over. Just like that. A couple years ago, I read an interesting article about time perception. It’s stuck with me because people my age constantly yak about how fast “life is slipping away.”…

The Difference Between Fathers and Mentors

Posted by Regi Campbell on July 2, 2018

Fathers can be mentors, but mentors aren’t necessarily fathers. Mentors choose to mentor, but once a man becomes a father, he is always the father. I believe that’s why God chose the father-son paradigm to explain the relationship He wants with us. God as the permanent, perfect, never going away, never giving up, always giving and forgiving Father. And…

While I’m sharing my story with some folks, I mention that I only have a few friends from my B.C. days, all the others have developed since. The guy sitting across the table caught my eye. “Why is that?” he asked. This is what came out of my mouth . . . “If you spend…

There’s Always Something You Don’t Know

Posted by Regi Campbell on June 18, 2018

A lot of us work somewhere that’s not ‘headquarters.’ Not ‘corporate.’ Not ‘the home office.’ That was me once. When the orders were handed down to us in the field, they sometimes seemed dumb. Out of touch with the real-world situation on the ground. I’d say, “What are they thinking up in the ivory tower?”…

Your coherent narrative is the story of your life. It’s usually chronological . . . starting with where and how you grew up and the big things that happened to you leading to big changes in you. Then, where you are now, and where you see yourself going from here. It starts with remembering. In his book The Rest…
