OCU Disaster Management Graduate Published

2013 Ohio Christian University graduate and former Disaster Management and Relief student Tempest Norris recently had her work published in the quarterly academic journal, Healing Ministry. The issue was dedicated to prose and poetry surrounding emotional trauma. Ms. Norris had stiff competition for the issue and beat out a number of other submissions to earn the spot in Healing Ministry.

Tempest’s poem, “What Would Happen” was originally written for one of her disaster classes at OCU. The course instructor, Thad Hicks stated, “Tempest is very talented. I knew the first time I saw her work, she had a unique and valuable voice that needed to be shared.”

A proven and effective tool for emergency and disaster management professionals, Healing Ministry is a quarterly journal for those who work with individuals or groups suffering from trauma, sickness, death and dying. Healing Ministry offers a balanced mix of relevant articles, timely research, field studies, commentaries and human interest stories on the power of faith to guide and comfort those in need.
