Jackhammer Daddy’s Day is Coming

By: Pete Alwinson on Tuesday June 11, 2019

Daddy is the title now only assigned to me by my baby girl who is in college. I’m secretly hoping she will call me that when I’m so feeble I can barely hear or see anything at all, and am about ready to step off the planet into the presence of The Father, Abba. Daughters have the right to do...

Hellboy… Again?

By: Pete Alwinson on Tuesday May 28, 2019

No, not that one. Not “a demon, raised from infancy after being conjured by and rescued from the Nazis, grows up to become a defender against the forces of darkness.” Not the fictional Hellboy…the real one. As a movie buff, I like the fictional one. I hate the real one. Martin Luther is one...

The Gift of Identity

By: Pete Alwinson on Thursday December 3, 2015

That sounds great, but even if you were willing “to be a man” and/or “find the man in yourself,” how would you know what that means? Biblically speaking, it’s not “step up and be a man”; it’s find your identity first as sons of the living God and become like his son and your brother...

Knowing Your Father

By: Pete Alwinson on Thursday November 12, 2015

Human dads are limited and finite. They can give love, but they cannot give infinite love. They can give wisdom, but they cannot give infinite wisdom. Dads can give temporal help, but they cannot give eternal salvation. Dads can open up their lives and hearts to their sons, but they can’t change...

The Irreplaceable Father

By: Pete Alwinson on Tuesday October 27, 2015

Your adoption as sons is by grace, freely available to all who turn to Jesus and accept his sacrifice by faith. No performance on your part, no great success, no failure, no damning words from other people, can ever change who you are: a son. In Christ your identity as a son of the living God is...

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...

Know Thyself: How God Wires His Sons

By: Pete Alwinson on Tuesday July 28, 2015

To know where we belong in the body of Christ, we need to know ourselves. Then we need to be set free by God's grace to be who he created us to be. This series will help. The video above is part 1 of a 3 part series delivered at Key Life's weekly gathering for men. Click here for the...

Men at Work! Our Place in God’s Plan

By: Pete Alwinson on Thursday May 21, 2015

When it comes to work, some of us are negative, others of us are positive. We’re all along the spectrum of our careers, some just starting out, some mid-career, some retired. Many men are just struggling to put food on the table for their families. What we need as men following Christ is to...
