"It's Never too Late!" - by Rev. Weldon Bares

Have you ever heard of Sir Christopher Wren? He was the architect who built the incredible St. Paul’s Cathedral in London in the 1600's after the Great Fire of London. He is considered to be the greatest English architect of all time.

I read something interesting about him the other day. When he was almost fifty years old, he was serving as professor of astronomy at Gresham College and Oxford. But then he started a second career in a new profession. He became an architect.

In the next forty-one years, Christopher Wren did the architectural design for fifty-three churches and cathedrals, most of which are still standing today.

Here is the truth that we need to remember. It is never too late to really get going in the right direction. It is never too late to find our true passion in life.

Do you know how old Moses was when God called him to lead the Hebrew slaves out of Egypt? He was 80 years old. Winston Churchill was 65 years old when he became the Prime Minister of Great Britain for the first time and started the struggle against Hitler. At 72, Golda Meir became Prime Minister of Israel. At age 76, Cardinal Angelo Roncalli became Pope John XXIII and brought about major changes in his church.

Benjamin Franklin was 81 years old when he brilliantly mediated between disagreeing factions at the U.S. Constitutional Convention. On his 100th birthday, ragtime pianist Eubie Blake said, "If I'd known I was going to live this long, I'd have taken better care of myself."

Let’s remember that it is never too late to hit our stride and to make a difference.
