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…

Presence

Posted by Regi Campbell on May 9, 2019

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…

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…

Tackle the Tangles

Posted by Regi Campbell on March 22, 2018

My post last week, “What’s Unpacked Sometimes Unravels,” was the most unnatural thing I’ve ever written. I know it was wise, but so unlike me. I struggle to leave anything alone; I’m the world’s worst at leaving things unpacked. I want to set it straight and get it over with, so I can move on…

Great Insults . . .

Posted by Regi Campbell on January 11, 2018

My friend Rod sent this the other day. It harkens back to the days when insults required more thought than ‘4 letter words’ or references to the other guy’s mother. Enjoy these but don’t use them. We’re trying to help you be better, not worse . . . A member of Parliament to Prime Minister…
