    What are "miracles?" Should they be viewed as a normative part of Christian experience?

    Guessing religious folk of the day would have thought little of the mixed company of persons gathered to the teaching of Jesus. For them submission to proscribed doctrine was the way forward. This in the context of ritual and blood sacrifice. Jesus telling stories about the worth of a flower...

    Barbara has been a nurse for the whole of her adult life. She has many stories about unexpected reversal of severe medical issues. Many times this reversal is considered miraculous by the patient and those who love her or him. This in no way implying any supernatural presence.
