"The definition of crisis has been the most enlightening thing for me. Inside that definition, if you have the dictionary to look it up, there are two words that define a crisis, and that is ‘turning point.’ And it’s fascinating, because when you think about the crisis that comes in your life, it really is a turning point in your life. Something different is going to happen at this point,” Steve Patterson said.

Patterson is the pastor of Central United Methodist Church in Dalhart. He, along with Robert Ledbetter, pastor of the Hillside Christian Church Dalhart campus, and Terry Stegall, pastor of Newlife Church in Dalhart, hosted three seminars last week on trauma. Each seminar was held at the Coon Memorial Hospital dining room. Although many in attendance were hospital employees, the seminars were open to anyone interested and aimed to provide attendees with tools to help others as they face trauma and crisis in their lives.
