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.)…

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…

There’s Always Something You Don’t Know

Posted by Regi Campbell on June 18, 2018

A lot of us work somewhere that’s not ‘headquarters.’ Not ‘corporate.’ Not ‘the home office.’ That was me once. When the orders were handed down to us in the field, they sometimes seemed dumb. Out of touch with the real-world situation on the ground. I’d say, “What are they thinking up in the ivory tower?”…

Never Create a Principle from a One-time Experience

Posted by Regi Campbell on May 24, 2018

We’ve talked about rules being decisions made in advance. Principles are different from rules. They’re more general than rules . . . a principle is non-specific to a situation or person. Plain and simple, principles are guidance. Here are a few  . . . He who walks with the wise grows wise. Birds of a feather…

Today’s post comes from Radical Mentoring Executive Director Kevin Harris . . . I love the game of golf. In fact, I’m writing this while watching The Players Championship. While I enjoy the long drives (especially the cool red line tracking the ball’s trajectory) and the gamesmanship between competitors, I’m most fascinated by the short…

In Light of the Facts

Posted by Regi Campbell on February 22, 2018

“Just give me the facts.” We men say it all the time. But sometimes our biggest problems stem from not accepting the facts. From deceiving ourselves and believing something other than the truth. This is particularly true of optimists like me. I’ll tell myself all kinds of lies to keep hope alive . . ….

Days of Doubt, Seasons of Peace

Posted by Regi Campbell on February 5, 2018

Years ago, someone close to me was facing a big decision. He wrangled with it for months, leaning one way then the other. One day, he walked out by the water to think and pray. A friend saw him and strolled out to chat. Once he’d shared his dilemma, his friend asked this question, “Do…
