When you saw “World Trade Center” or stared at CNN 8 1/2 years ago, did the heroes in uniform remind you of your church, the Church, or Destiny?
Saving #11 of those rescued
In the movie “World Trade Center,” several things stood out:
The fireman chain that stood shoulder-to-shoulder for several hundred yards, passing a newly recovered victim to the EMS. —> Hundreds at Destiny working for the common cause of helping one freed by Christ.
The photos of victims missing —> The many yet to be saved, people we know, that we see daily.
The lack of organization in initial emergency response —> Who’s calling, visiting, writing, praying for the healing of the hurting or newly saved in our church?
The workers from out of state, handing out bratwursts —> The Baptist church choir who visited last Sunday. The Destiny team who visited DC. Our District’s missionaries on the field now. The volunteers at Destiny who give hours each week.
