SEARCH AND RESCUE


There is a group of people I hope we never have to meet. They’re job is hard, exciting, frightening and important all at the same time. They do SAR; Search and Rescue. They work near Reno, Nevada and work ski resorts and desert rescue. They pull people off of Mt. Hood, find lost hikers in the Cascades and recover bodies from the Columbia Gorge. They use boats and helos to brave the rough seas of our Oregon coast. One specific part of this fraternity is the US Coast Guard whose SAR motto is; "This we do so others may live."


To avoid these people professionally one only has to use their common sense—don’t ski out of bounds, hike prepared and with a buddy etc. Still, there are always unseen things that cause us to need rescue. Last week’s man who had been born blind was one such soul. His blindness was for the expressed purpose of showing God’s glory.


(From a sermon by Charles Wilkerson, Being Safe in an Unsafe World, 10/21/2009)
