“Is 40 Late?”

October 2, 2021

Asking, “Why, at age 40, did you decide to strike out on your own as a fashion designer?” the Harvard Business Review suggested in 2019 that Vera Wang had been late to start a business.

Previously she had a career as an editor at Vogue and accessories designer at Ralph Lauren, where she also oversaw licensing. And she was a figure skater who barely missed qualifying for the 1968 Olympic games.

“I said, is 40 late?” she recalls.

—- Good question.

That’s from a recent article in an investment publication.

Vera Wang is now 72. And going strong. “Is 40 late?”

I recently said from the pulpit that God is still calling people at all ages and stages of life into full-time Christian service.

Maybe you’re in that group.

Your pastor would welcome the chance to pray with you about this and to explore what this might mean.

Our denomination has a wonderful thing called The Inquiry Process to help with, well, to help with your Inquiry into God’s call. I’m sure other churches have something similar.

“Is 40 late?”

Not for Vera Wang. And not to God.

As always, I’d love to hear you about any of this.

And I hope to see you back here tomorrow.

Meanwhile, “Is 40 late?’
