54 year-old Howard Snitzer of Goodhue, Minn. collapsed on a freezing sidewalk. Two car mechanics and a high school teacher ran over to help. “For the next 96 minutes, a tag team of more than 25 other people, including volunteer firefighters, took turns performing CPR on Snitzer, until a rescue helicopter could take him to a hospital.” Dr. Bruce Wilkoff reported the expectation he would make a full recovery. “It’s remarkable. It’s a great example of people doing the right thing and having it work out.”

Jesus left His church here to do spiritual CPR on a world that is collapsing under the weight of sin. We should be participating together in the task.
Acts 2:42 (CEV) They spent their time learning from the apostles, and they were like family to each other. They also broke bread and prayed together.
