Accomplished athlete takes lead as new minister at Union Church of Hinsdale
HINSDALE – He was standing on the shoreline peering out across the English Channel, ready for the cold grip of the Atlantic to do what it could to stop him from reaching the other side of the exhausting swim.
“I just thought to myself, OK, I am like a spring that through all of my training, through all of my conditioning, through all of my work, I’ve been winding-up that spring and all I have to do is let out all of that energy slowly over the next 15 hours,” said Rev. Mike Solberg, senior minister at the Union Church of Hinsdale.
It was the culmination of a 30-year dream for the minister. Like those who followed tradition before him, Solberg didn’t use a wet suit and left himself at the mercy of the current.
