Transforming Our Trauma.
In a moment, Dr. Michael Anderson of Westminster Church while standing in St. Anthony’s Hospital, as victims of the Oklahoma City Bombing arrive with various injuries… some very severe and some not as severe, realizes the magnitude of tragedy.

He acknowledges the overwhelming impact, the amount of suffering and the amazing coordination of emergency health officials. The compassionate and accurate response of emergency medical systems was simply amazing.

What resulted was a moving sermon written by Dr. Anderson late Saturday night, April 26, 1995. The sermon’s words of enlightenment, encouragement, hope, love and understanding was copied and shared with more than 2,000 people. It also included and amazing plan to help transform trauma into peace, hope and love. (Download a PDF Copy of Dr. Anderson’s Sermon)
