It Ain’t Over . . .

Posted by Regi Campbell on June 13, 2016

Growing up Baptist, I heard a lot of “Just As I Am” sung at the end of church services. The preacher wanted people to walk down the aisle and accept Jesus, a noble goal for sure. He’d keep the service going as long as it took to get someone to the altar. All us evangelicals…

It’s All About Steps!

Posted by Regi Campbell on June 9, 2016

If our motive is to help everyone we know move one step closer to Christ, then everything we do in relationship with another person is evangelism. That’s right! When we invite people to go to dinner, play golf, attend an event . . . even go shopping, and do it with a spiritual motive (i.e….

Birds of a Feather…

. . . you don’t need me to finish it for you. This saying’s been around since the 16th century. Birds and animals of all sorts ‘flock together’ with ‘their kind’. It’s part of our comfort and sometimes, our safety. There’s power in numbers . . . ‘good guys’ do better against the ‘bad guys’…

Men and Empathy

Posted by Regi Campbell on March 10, 2014

A man with empathy is about as likely as a man in high-heeled shoes. It rarely comes with the boy. I wish I had it….I really do. But I’m missing the chip. The DNA from my parents must have overheated in transit. I know empathy when I see it and on the rare occasion it…

Write a Letter

Posted by Regi Campbell on September 30, 2013

Ever have something you want to say to someone but they just can’t hear you. Or you just can’t seem to get the words right?  It’s a really “old-school’ idea but writing a personal, handwritten letter is something worth considering. Way back when, that was the lowest but most essential way to communicate. Then typed…

When I was all of 24 years old, I met this guy at church. He was 26. Good looking. Friendly. Pretty wife. Adopted newborn kid. Former college quarterback. Physical therapist. Committed Christ-follower. His name was Butch Buchanan. Butch made a huge impression on me. He was a quiet guy, but there was substance about him….

I make a big deal out of knowing the date you became a follower of Jesus . . . your ‘spiritual birthday.’ It was a big day for me because I was so lost. And when I surrendered to Jesus, I felt so found. So loved with a Father’s love for the first time. My…

The Guy at the Door

Posted by Regi Campbell on September 3, 2012

Maybe the kingdom of God is like a club. I don’t know much about clubs or the club scene. I’ve only been to a couple. There’s always a line and a guy at the door who decides who gets in and who doesn’t. What if Jesus is the Guy at the door? Suppose He’s not…

“Your company is your church” he said. “The people who work with you, sell to you, buy from you…those are your parishioners. Some are going to be sold out to Christ. Some don’t know and don’t care. But they’re all within your ‘reach’…within your influence. It’s your job to meet every one of them ‘where…

5 Principles of Paying Compliments to People

Posted by Regi Campbell on May 10, 2012

“Hey, that’s a nice new haircut you have.” “Your last blog post was ‘killer’! Keep it up!” “She is such a generous friend. She brought over dinner last week when I was sick….I don’t know how she knew I was down and out!” Everyone likes getting compliments. Most of the time, they feel really good,…
