Confession

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 11, 2019

  Nowadays, we talk about transparency. But for centuries, it was called confession. It’s the idea of telling another Jesus-follower your failures and misdeeds. Confessing sin to one another was a huge part of the early church and perhaps a big part of its profound power and influence. Over the years, private confession to a priest replaced…

Known and Needed

Posted by Regi Campbell on October 24, 2019

Following Jesus was never intended to be an individual sport. Jesus always had His guys walking with Him. As He helped His disciples develop their faith, He sent them out . . . not alone, but together. Two-by-two. Jesus knew how hard it would be for us to follow Him. Living selflessly, humbly, generously, forgiving…

Gaining Perspective

Posted by Regi Campbell on October 17, 2019

Sometimes I say stuff and think, “Hmm, that sounded pretty good! I wonder if I made that up?” Usually, it was from Andy Stanley or another person smarter than me. But to make sure, I google it. If the author doesn’t pop up, maybe I did come up with it. So, here’s one . ….

Why Effective Teams Work

Posted by Regi Campbell on October 3, 2019

Most of us have been on a sports team in our life. Your family is a team. You’re part of a team at work. If you’ve ever been part of a successful team, all six of these things were there . . . Common Purpose –Teams exist for a purpose. Effective teams are focused on their…

Lessons from the Rocket Man (Part 2)

Posted by Kevin Harris on July 22, 2019

As I mentioned in my last post, I recently saw Rocketman, the Elton John biopic, whose narrative centers around his major stint in rehab as a completely broken man. As I wrote about in Part 1, Elton’s father wound was a prominent theme in the movie. But there was another striking theme I found relevant…

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 Currency of Real Friendship is Need

Posted by Regi Campbell on May 30, 2019

The old saying goes, to have a friend, you have to be one. I don’t think so. Sounds more like a business deal. It’s a trade, not a friendship. Have you ever had a friend who wasn’t a good friend back? Sure you have. A better saying would be, to have a friend, you have…

Presence

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…

Behaving to Believing

Posted by Regi Campbell on December 27, 2018

Most evangelicals (myself included) have lived under the idea that a person comes to believe in Jesus and then their behavior will change. A true statement, but it doesn’t always happen that way. Yes, there are those who have a Damascus road experience leading to immediately transformed lives. But stories abound of men and women…

Feeling Good About Ourselves

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 8, 2018

Ok, here’s one to store in your head and your heart . . . We feel good about ourselves when we do the right thing. It just happens. When we push ourselves to fill out a totally truthful expense report or tax return, it happens. When we volunteer somewhere, giving our time and energy to…
