A Three Word Legacy

Posted by Kevin Harris on August 2, 2018

Today’s post comes from Radical Mentoring Executive Director Kevin Harris . . . I’ve never been much of a funeral guy . . . not that anyone is. The first one I remember was for my father when I was a sophomore in high school. I’ve attended plenty since then, but not until my 40’s…

Just Your Earth Suit

The other day, my wife and I counted 8 people whose deaths we’ve been close to in the last few years. Close family members and friends. Some sudden and tragic . . . some long, drawn out and excruciating. That’s not to mention my ‘near miss’ with a lung transplant. We’re wondering if maybe we’re…

Not long ago, I joined a host of people to pray for Lisa and Mark. Mark was in my Radical Mentoring group a few years back and Lisa is his wife. They have two young sons. She is battling recurrent cancer and it’s serious. I came home to find that my next-door neighbor has breast…

The Power of Presence

Maybe it’s my age or the season of life I’m in. All around me, people are dying. Young people are losing children to wrecks and pools and drug overdoses. Old people are losing their siblings and friends to cancer and heart disease and dementia. I’m one of those . . . about to lose my…

A couple of my mentees were on a mission trip to an outer region of India to engage an unreached people group. The taxi they were riding in suddenly lurched, the tires screeched and they felt a ‘thud’ just as the cab stopped moving. Neither of them could speak the language, but you can pretty…

Lord Willing and the Creek Don’t Rise

Posted by Kevin Harris on July 21, 2016

Have you ever heard the saying, “Lord willing and the creek don’t rise?” It sounds like a line out of a country song . . . a line we throw out casually when someone asks if we’ll see them next week or for dinner tonight. In our ‘take things for granted’ and ‘instant gratification’ society,…

True Love Shows Up

Posted by Regi Campbell on February 15, 2016

Nothing brings love into the conversation like pain and suffering. The other day, I called an old friend who lives in Texas, confined to a wheelchair. He immediately burst into tears, telling me how he lost his 5-year-old grandson to cancer 4 days after Christmas.  What was I to say? What can anyone say or…

Why? Why?

Why?

Posted by Regi Campbell on May 11, 2015

When a young person passes from this life or when someone dies unexpectedly, the ‘why’ question starts percolating. The intensity of the question directly relates to the age and health of the person. My 93 year-old cousin died the other day and there was a smile, almost a yawn. Nice lady, lived a good life, husband’s already gone, Amen….

After 25 days in ICU and acute care, Marilyn’s pulse started to soften. Her husband of 61 years bent over and said a tearful goodbye. A few more minutes and her breathing stopped. We asked God to welcome her to heaven with a big-time celebration. We know He did because . . . “Precious in the sight of…

He’ll Never Let Go

So a kid goes to a rock climbing place for a birthday party. His dad watches as the staff puts his son in the harness and tightens it up. The belay rope is attached and checked. The staff guy is an experienced rock climber . . . you know because he has long hair and…
