About this title

Synopsis:

Pastor and author, Rev. Dr. Robert LaRochelle invites us into his ministry as he shares his experience with some of the most difficult and troubling questions and thought provoking comments he has faced. Through a series of preachings and conversations held in his local church in Connecticut, this book came to be. Within the chapters, Pastor LaRochelle offers his own reflection on each question or statement. He then explains, explores and comments about the discussions that took place on each of these topics, discussions that were actually part of his church's worship service that morning. These are real life spiritual issues and take the reader on a journey through the insights of a pastor and congregation in real dialogue with one another. The reader is encouraged to engage in conversations on these issues in their own homes, faith communities, through social media and in the various contexts in which they live their lives. To this end, suggested discussion questions will be offered at the end of each chapter. Here are some of the kinds of questions and comments addressed in this helpful book: "Pastor, my wife is in the hospital and they think her cancer has spread. Will you keep us in your prayers?" "My 16 year old son says he does not believe in God and never will." "I don't think you need to go to church to be a good person. I will never raise my kids to go to church." "Pastor, can you come and visit my dad? He is dying." "I am just so thankful for all of my blessings!" "I know that when I die, I am going to heaven, where I will see all my loved ones who have died or will die someday." "Some people say the church is a dying institution. What do you think, Pastor?" This exciting book provides an in depth look at a pastor's own self examination in the context of the real life struggles of a community of faith, a local church.

About the Author:

Bob LaRochelle holds a Doctor of Ministry in Preaching from Chicago Theological Seminary. He was raised in the Roman Catholic Church, attended Catholic elementary and secondary school as well as college and graduate school. He then served as a Theology instructor in Catholic high schools, a Diocesan level official in adolescent religious education, a parish youth minister and Director of Religious Education. In 1989, he was ordained to the Permanent Diaconate and served in that capacity until 1998. After a period of study to discern how he would continue to serve the church, he became an ordained minister of the United Church of Christ. He is currently the pastor at the Second Congregational Church in Manchester, CT. He remains deeply committed to ecumenical work within the universal church of Jesus Christ. He has been married to his wife Tricia for 31 years and they are blessed with three children: Brian, Kathleen and Stephen. He is a proud and grateful alumnus of the College of the Holy Cross. He is the author of PART-TIME PASTOR, FULL-TIME CHURCH (Pilgrim Press, Cleveland, 2010).
