From the Bar to the Pulpit

April 3, 2020

There’s an article in the April 2020 issue of Men’s Health that has Tony Hawk giving “advice to his younger self and fellow 50-somethings still getting after it.”  There’s a sidebar sketching out advice from a 55 year old man named Mark Salvacion who not long ago switched careers. It reads like this —

WHY? I was a whistleblower and achieved a substantial settlement but realized I wasn’t happy in my career.

HOW? I went to seminary.

ADVICE? Ask the hard questions: Do you feel self-actualized? Are you taking care of your soul? I earn 90 percent less money now, but I’m 90 percent happier.

— His two Advice questions remind me of a question asked by those early Methodists, “How is it with your soul?”

As I often suggest here, apply as needed.

    When peace like a river, attendeth my way, when sorrows like sea billows roll, whatever my lot . . . It is well with my soul.
