Coming from a family line of coal miners in Northern Pennsylvania, once again I’m gripped by this rescue. My mother recounts how, back in the day, the alarm bell would ring in the middle of the night and her father would rush out to rescue fellow workers trapped in the mine.
We all have contact points that draw us to turn our energies of prayer toward particular situations. This is one for me. I lead worship in our community tomorrow, and these families will be on my heart and mind.
