Miracles still occur every day

It’s a miracle. Yes, it is. No, it isn’t.

Usually a discussion emerges from this opener. A facilitator would be delighted to use these lines at an opening of a controversial discussion. A perfect issue because God is involved.

Opinions are heated exchanges, possibly for a clearer understanding of – it’s a miracle – for sure. No way. A common fault in discussions is being concretized with an opinion in advance.

Therefore, what is a miracle? Miracles definitely, absolutely and positively occurred in the time of Jesus. He was the cause. Through the centuries, miracles did happen. They were intensely investigated to find only a cause far above and beyond a natural cause.

Could a miracle happen now, at this time? Why not? There are certainly many horrible disasters, life-threatening accidents, horrifying events from which happy, joyful life-saving dramas result to say – it’s a miracle.

Therefore, what is a miracle? Just the strangest thing, or much more?

A miracle is an event or action that apparently contradicts known scientific laws and therefore thought to be done and due to supernatural causes. An act of God; divine intervention.

Faith in the power of prayer. It’s a miracle, followed by a song and prayers of thanksgiving.
