Rescued!

The rescue of the 33 miners after 69 days underground from the San Jose mine in Chile provides a real-life metaphor for what Christ has done for us:

For he (Christ) has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. (Colossians 1:13-14)
Here is another mine disaster where the human outcome was different, but the faith of the trapped men and boys sustained them - the Seaham Colliery disaster of September 1880
