Mormons, Myth, Miracles, & Magic

On any given Sunday, but especially on the first Sunday of the month, it is not uncommon to hear Latter-day Saints speak of miracles in their lives. To an objective viewer, it is sometimes difficult to distinguish between some event that might qualify as a miracle and others that seem more within the realm of magic or myth. What is the difference between myth, magic, and miracles? Is it important to make such distinctions? What are the dangers of seeing every positive event as a miracle? This session examines the extraordinary and seeming-extraordinary through the lens of the natural, supernatural, and cultural.
