Less to Fear Than Anybody

Posted by Regi Campbell on May 20, 2019

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 a…

The Power of a Good ‘No’

Posted by Regi Campbell on May 2, 2019

Last week, I wrote about ‘letting your yes be yes’ and how standing at the fork in the road between ‘yes’ and ‘no’ can be the beginning of evil. But what about a good old fashioned, definitive, downward voice-inflected no? Saying no and meaning it is one of the most freeing things a person can…

Anything Beyond This Comes from the Evil One

Posted by Regi Campbell on April 29, 2019

This is the second of two posts looking at Matthew 5:37. The first was about how our struggle to say yes or no and mean it ultimately comes down to trust. In this post, let’s look closer at the second half of the verse, “anything beyond this comes from the evil one.” I’ve always been…

Yes or No

Posted by Regi Campbell on April 25, 2019

When I began putting Radical Mentoring together, I wanted to make it about real life . . . about the things we do and deal with every day. Early on, the subject of decision-making went on the list. I realized there are two dimensions . . . decision-making and decisiveness. Coming to a good decision…

The Mystery of Motives

Posted by Regi Campbell on April 22, 2019

A motive is “a reason for doing something.” Notice it says a reason, not the reason. We, humans, are complicated rascals. We almost always act with multiple motives. Even when we just want to pass along information, our words can give away our feelings. In addition to our words, our body language, voice intonation, and…

The Bridge to Nowhere

Posted by Kevin Harris on February 28, 2019

As I’m sure you know, the city of Atlanta hosted this year’s Super Bowl. Officials estimated approximately 150,000 out of town guests and over 1 million total people would attend the game or the various events leading up to it. Two separate stories caught my eye during the week leading up to the big game….

Peace is Not the Absence of War

Posted by Regi Campbell on February 11, 2019

Is the U.S. at war right now? I think the official answer is no, but it doesn’t feel very peaceful to me. There’s certainly no peace in our political world, and you don’t have to look far in most neighborhoods to find disharmony. Every family seems to have some kind of drama going on, and…

Simplicity

Posted by Regi Campbell on January 31, 2019

“God made man simple; man’s complex problems are of his own choosing.” (Ecclesiastes 7:30) Right now, all the big box stores are filled with storage bins and organizing supplies. With Christmas gone and a new year on, there’s lots of talk about fresh starts . . . losing weight, exercise, getting organized, and simplifying. I…

The Thing Versus the Idea of the Thing

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 15, 2018

Learning to recognize the thing versus the idea of the thing is huge. For years, I kept my eye out for a ’66 yellow GTO like the one I had as a kid. One day, I saw it. It jumped out of my browser and grabbed me. (I can’t remember how I got to eBay Motors.)…

Safe or Out?

Posted by Kevin Harris on June 21, 2018

Today’s post comes from Radical Mentoring Executive Director Kevin Harris . . . For the first part of my summer, I get to travel to different local baseball parks to watch my two sons play. It is a great experience for our family . . . we get to watch our boys do something they…
