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…

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…

Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

Posted by Kevin Harris on October 11, 2018

This summer there was a fair amount of attention on Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, a documentary on the life of Fred Rogers. Confession: unless Mr. Rogers removed his red cardigan to take on spies in a foreign land, save the world or score the winning run, I knew I wasn’t going to watch this…

Posted by Kevin Harris on August 27, 2018

Today’s post comes from Radical Mentoring Executive Director Kevin Harris . . . While listening to a podcast the other morning, I heard a term that stopped me in my tracks . . . assumicide. I am not sure if the speaker made the word up or not, but the idea resonated deeply with me….

. . . And What Are You Thinking About Doing?

Posted by Regi Campbell on August 6, 2018

In Bob Goff’s book, Love Does, he makes the case that the traditional accountability partner deal doesn’t work. We lie to others and deceive ourselves, especially when we’re ashamed. We can only hold each other accountable for what we’re willing to share. And the more distant the friendship, the easier it is to be less…

Stronger Closer Together

Posted by Regi Campbell on April 19, 2018

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…
