Like Father, Like Son

By: Pete Alwinson on Tuesday October 13, 2015

Yes, it is. For many men the very word “father” or “dad” can elicit a wide range of emotions: fear, rejection, loss, guilt, anger/rage, anxiety, and ambivalence. Sometimes they just shake their heads as if to say, “I don’t get him. I have more questions than answers about him and about...

Calling God a Liar

By: Pete Alwinson on Tuesday September 8, 2015

But I have. Well, ok, maybe I’ve never actually called God a liar, but I’ve acted like I thought He had lied to me and then treated Him like He had lied right to my face. It occurred to me this morning that I was treating God as a liar when I was meeting with Him and I’m pretty sure He was...

On The Inside Looking Out

By: Pete Alwinson on Tuesday March 3, 2015

I’m a Californian but I live in Florida and have lived here a very long time. I miss home, still, after all these years. Florida is beautiful and there are never-ending adventures here: trails to ride and hike, animals to track, sunrises and sunsets to absorb, waves to ride, lakes to fish. When I...
