Stronger Closer Together

Attending a seeker church as I do, the constant question is “Don’t we need to go deeper?” “Are we ‘fast food church,’ looking to make following Jesus quick-serve . . .  high calorie, low cost, low value?” “Are people going to become deeply rooted in Jesus through our church?” So, recently I turned to Scripture…

The Missing Peace

Posted by Regi Campbell on March 21, 2016

So next Sunday is the day preachers verbalize the Gospel and pray the ‘sinners prayer’ from the platform. And why not? It’s when the CEW&F people come to church . . . you gotta’ hit ‘em when you can, right? As I’ve listened to these passionate appeals over the years, I always hear the same…

In the England of C.S. Lewis’ day, there was quite a split in politics, culture and especially in the church. In his classic work, Mere Christianity Lewis waded into these waters . . . into the schisms between the various churches. I love how he took the high ground and spoke timeless words to all…

Stop Counting?

Posted by Regi Campbell on December 9, 2013

Not too long ago, I heard Bob Goff say “We need to stop counting”. He’s busting on everything being so knotted up and measured. So ‘corporate’. He said love should be inefficient. Senselessly abundant and over the top. Ever had a little wad of money in your pocket with no idea if it’s ones, fives,…

Every Christian I’ve met has a paradigm of ‘church’. If they could wave a magic wand, their church would be a certain size, provide a certain kind of music and worship style, hire the perfect preacher, offer exactly the right programs, be there in a crisis with just the right touch and make them feel…

I don’t know anyone who is totally satisfied with their church. People who go to a large church want the warmth and connection of a smaller one. Others are trapped in smaller churches and hungry for the awesome music, programs and preaching of bigger ones. Go to a ‘seeker church’ and it ‘doesn’t go deep…

Ever since Michael Jordan signed his first shoe deal, I’ve been fascinated by this thing called ‘transference’. What on God’s green earth does a basketball player from Wilmington North Carolina have to do with the shoes I wear? And now he’s into my underwear. Since Michael doesn’t want tags in his t-shirts, I certainly don’t….

Imagine how cool it was to see those words printed on a tri-fold brochure being handed out at the student center of this huge university I’d just arrived at. People were scarfing them up like free money. It was the height of protests against the war in Viet Nam and every student seemed to be…

A couple of years ago, I met Jan Smith, Justin Bieber’s mentor and vocal coach. Jan said something that’s riveted to my brain. She said “Music gets access to your soul without your permission”. I think she spoke truth….profound truth. Think how a little ‘ditty’ gets stuck in your noggin and plays over and over?…

Anyone can go to church, at least we can here in America. There’s no admission fee, no ticket required, no secret handshake (unless they haven’t let me in on it. Uh oh. I wouldn’t be so paranoid if it weren’t for all those people out to get me!). But when you move beyond just attending,…
