Pastor Pete and I talk about the amazing story of how he reconnected with his drug addicted father after a 30 year absence. That event inspired him to write his first book called, “Prodigal Father.” We talk about forgiveness, “for grieving,” reconciliation, and even the unique writing process that he used to write his first book.
