Good Work Matters: The Surprising Story of the Oxygen Mask

Reid Kapple, an associate pastor at Christ Community Kansas City, shares an experience he had losing cabin pressure mid-flight — and then discovering the company who manufactured the mask that saved his life.

Why this matters: First, this is simply a really good and inspiring story on why work matters. But beyond that, it is a great example for pastors on the value of affirming people’s work — and one way to do that which had quite extraordinary results.
