“Where was God at 9:02 AM?” on April 19, 1995, as OKC broadcaster Robin Jones asked in her inspiring book of that name. Many emotions went through John’s heart as he and Gwin Faulconer-Lippert recorded this podcast at KTOK/iHeartRadio. His heart was broken anew over how much we lost in the Oklahoma City Bombing. But it was filled with pride and love for Oklahoma and its courageous people at how they responded. And amazed at how God, inscrutably, seemed to enter in.
iHeartRadio star Gwin Faulconer-Lippert and John revisit this historic horror, and some of the silver, even Providential linings that emerged from it. Yet, we are still learning from it, still healing, and will likely be for a long time. It’s the twentieth episode of our weekly OKLAHOMA GOLD! radio program and podcast. Go HERE to listen to them all! Future episodes explore more great heroes, events, and movements of Oklahoma History.
