SOS is the international Morse code distress signal (· · · – – – · · ·). First adopted by the German government in radio regulations effective April 1, 1905, and became the worldwide standard under the second International Radiotelegraphic Convention, which was signed on November 3, 1906, and became effective on July 1, 1908. SOS remained the maritime radio distress signal until 1999, when it was replaced by the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System. SOS is still recognized as a visual distress signal. From Wikipedia.org
Save Our Ship was not a message you wanted to send or receive. By sea it was a life or death plea.
Not to be confused with raising the white flag, SOS is reserved for the lost.
With the conversations involving rules and diapers, I encourage everyone to ride out the rapids, continue to make preparations and have a good plan.
Although the SOS was a last resort, it was still part of a well layed out plan.
Congrats to “Captain Chris” for his quick response to the Cordova/Saint Louis situation and the diaper shortage.
Kudos to Fugly for responding to the Captains computer SOS…---…
Some references state the urgency by “Save Our Souls”.
In the ministry it’s not a call we want to receive, but ready to answer. 24/7
David’s psalm of thanksgiving
From Holy Scripture 1 Chronicles 16
34O give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; For His lovingkindness is everlasting. 35Then say, "Save us, O God of our salvation, And gather us and deliver us from the nations, To give thanks to Your holy name, And glory in Your praise."
There is only one name in heaven or on earth that has the power to save, Jesus.
Oh Lord, Save Our Souls
Be blessed and be safe,
