LIFE AS A MIDDLE MANN

I was out for a walk...

...the other day with a friend of mine named Don Bubna. I feel incredibly fortunate that this treasure chest of wisdom, insight, and life-changing questions is willing to spend a morning walk with me every once in a while. Don asks questions in a way that reminds me of my Dad, the good kinds of questions that get you thinking about things you hadn't thought about and lead you down a trail of self-discovery. Sometimes I get nervous because I don't know where the questions are going to head and I always wish I was a little further along than I ever am. On this day, however, I turned the tables for a moment and asked Don a question about his life. My question was this: Looking back on all your decades in ministry (six, I believe), which one do you feel was your most significant? What do you think he said? He answered by saying, "this current one." He didn't even need to think about it very long. Keep in mind that this guy used to write for Christianity Today, Leadership Journal, has a few Doctorates, pastored a megachurch for a quarter century, and none of those took place in this current decade! But I believe he's right in that his influence and his effectiveness in ministry are at an all-time high. Here's where that answer took my thoughts and what I can't stop thinking about... If you knew that your most effective years/your greatest contribution would come in your eighth decade of life, how would that change the way you live now?
