#14: Finding Forgiveness after the OKC Bombing (full hour)

It’s been 25 years since the Oklahoma City Bombing, the deadliest act of domestic terrorism in our nation’s history. Many know the story of Timothy McVeigh, but few know the stories of his victims and their families – Bud Welch, who reached out to McVeigh’s father to find forgiveness and healing. Jeanne Bishop, who has seen her own family torn by violence, joins us with their story.
