The author of this little book was a self-described 79-year-old geezer who, like Paul Newman, wondered how he would do the dying thing. After doctors have probed and prescribed and made us feel like volunteers for medical research, we often need to take a deep breath and make sense of things. In On Our Way Home Bob Herhold tells instructive, inspiring, and humorous stories of aging and loss, helping us to see that though life seems to be flying by, we can make every moment count by dancing lightly with God. Herhold s stories encourage us as we face life s most democratic event death by demonstrating that When we have fewer answers, we may have more faith We can learn to forgive others, ourselves, and are you ready for this? even God (for giving us the gift of so much freedom ) It is not how we keep the faith, but how the faith keeps us It is not necessary to distinguish daily prayer from daily existence Dying, though it is the last thing we do, teaches us so much about living We probably do not have enough faith to be an atheist Life offers hints that after we die, the dance still goes on In this collection of thoughtful and concise reflections, Pastor Bob Herhold considers the meaning and challenges of living life to the end. From fear of death to the delights of old age, Herhold challenges us to honestly face what each of our lives offer with the faith that death itself brings hope. With an eye that peers beyond the horizon and a steady belief in taking each step at a time, Bob Herhold walks with us into the future with kindness, assurance, and a wit to humble Death itself.
