Have you ever been in a situation where you needed an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) to administer immediate assistance or provide transportation?
I remember when a volunteer Rescue Squad was formed in my hometown of LaGrange, North Carolina. This dedicated group of men and women donated their time for training and responding to emergency situations.
I also remember that every time the LaGrange Rescue Squad was dispatched on an emergency call. . .it was reported in our local newspaper, The Weekly Gazette. It’s a bit humorous (kinda) that everything reported from having a baby to having a heart attack was referred to as a “sudden illness.”
We know because when they rushed to our home on a Thursday evening and took our newly arrived baby girl and us to the hospital, our precious bundle of joy was described as a ‘sudden illness’ … even though she was 9 months in the making.
Over the years, the title of the organization evolved into EMTs. . .truthfully, the name does have a little more pizazz than rescue squad.
The protocols used by EMTs have an amazing parallel to spiritual EMTs otherwise known as “Emergency Miracle Technician.”
Now you’re probably wondering who in the world is an Emergency Miracle Technician and how in the world. . .do you become designated, trained and identified as such?
Is the spiritual EMT your pastor. . .it could be.
