Three Phases of the Christian Life

Posted by Regi Campbell on May 21, 2018

I see three phases in the lives of Christians. The first begins when someone “gets serious about their faith” or “comes to Christ” or “becomes genuinely aware” of God in their hearts” or “gets saved” or “surrenders to Jesus.” Whatever words we pick, we’re talking someone’s initial authentic personal engagement with the Lord. “I’ve been…

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…

Your Mother’s Story

Posted by Regi Campbell on May 13, 2018

Regrets are missed opportunities. One of my regrets is that I never sat down with pencil and paper and captured my mom’s story. I thought I knew it, but I didn’t. Sure, I knew the demographics . . . when and where she was born, siblings, the economic hardships of growing up in the Great…

Are You Becoming Hard-Hearted?

Are you becoming hard-hearted? Confession here – I am. I don’t like it. And I’m going to change it. Here’s what happened. As I was doing my exercise walk in the park the other day, I saw the American flag at half-staff . . . again. I thought, “Wonder what that’s for this time?” There…

I Just Want to Be Happy

Posted by Regi Campbell on April 2, 2018

How many times have you heard someone say, “But I just want to be happy!” Or even said it yourself? “I’d be happy if I could lose another 10 pounds, but I hate starving all the time!” “I love the people I work with, but I’m so unhappy with my job.” “I can’t stand this…

Walk into a dark room and flip the light switch. Darkness disappears, replaced by light. In fact, darkness isn’t really a ‘thing’ in and of itself.  Just something that happens when there’s no light. Genesis 1:4 recounts the creation of light . . . “And God saw the light, that it was good: and God…

About 173 million Americans identify themselves as Christians. If you’re reading this blog, odds are you’re one of them. Now I’m neither smart nor well-read enough to explain the various criteria used to validate one’s claim to being identified as a Christian. The theology is thick. Are you a John 3:16 kind of Christian, betting…

I have compassion when I understand – If someone seems extraordinarily fearful, my gut reaction is to tell them “Be brave, what are the odds of that bad thing happening?” But when I understand the person’s story, when I hear of the events in their life that ‘told them’ the world isn’t a safe place,…

Unless you are living alone in a cave, you know about the rare coast-to-coast total eclipse that happened in America on August 21st. Since my daughter’s family lives smack-dab in the middle of ‘the area of totality,’ we couldn’t miss the chance to see this thing. My son’s family lives in Athens, GA, about 32…
