Kids and Adopted Kids

Posted by Regi Campbell on May 13, 2019

So, I see a pontoon boat on the pond beyond my house. In it are five kids along with a couple of guys. As they draw closer, I notice it’s three black kids, two white kids, and two white dads. It’s a good guess that an adoption occurred somewhere! These couples wanted more kids, but…

“I’m An Idiot!”

Posted by Regi Campbell on April 10, 2019

Have you ever called yourself an idiot? After accidentally dinging the shiny new car next to you, what comes out of your mouth? When you drop your mug and coffee spills everywhere, what do you say? Are you repeating what your dad or an old coach or your ex-wife called you? Maybe it didn’t stick…

Identity or Theology?

Okay, this may seem like a “which came first, the chicken or the egg?” kind of question, but which comes first . . . believing in God or knowing about God? Over the years, the church seems to have followed the logic that if we learn enough about God, we’ll believe in Him. So, we…

You Can’t Put the Toothpaste Back in the Tube

Posted by Regi Campbell on January 18, 2019

What’s done is done . . . you can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube . . . it’s no use crying over spilled milk. I believe it’s a gift from God . . . this dark black line between the past and now. It’s why He gave us His grace the way He…

A few months ago, this quote from Lebron James showed up on SportsCenter . . . “I still regret giving my 14-year-old my name. When I was younger, obviously, I didn’t have a dad. My whole thing was, whenever I have a kid, not only is he gonna be a Junior, but I’m gonna do…

“And when he came to himself . . .” These six words might be the most important words in the world. They come from Jesus’ story of the prodigal son, recounted in Luke 15 (King James Version). The young man decides he doesn’t want to be who he’d started out to be . . ….

Your coherent narrative is the story of your life. It’s usually chronological . . . starting with where and how you grew up and the big things that happened to you leading to big changes in you. Then, where you are now, and where you see yourself going from here. It starts with remembering. In his book The Rest…

Years ago, a good friend really handed it to me. He said, “When I see someone running as hard as you run, I wonder who he’s trying to please.” My friend didn’t wonder, “Is he trying to please someone?” He knew that answer. The question was who? Most of us start out trying to please…

My church just had its annual Man Night. Quite a production with campfires, bacon snacks, brownies and milk, film clips . . . you know, real guy stuff. At the end of the main talk, 6 truths about identity were put up on the screen along with this question, “Which of these do you struggle…

Who am I? Identity was Dictionary.com’s 2015 Word of the Year. Millions are ordering DNA profiles on themselves. What’s my race? My nationality of origin? Why do we care so much about identity? Because we don’t know who we are and we want someone with credibility to tell us. Beginning in early, early childhood, our…
