Life

Miracles

Discussion starters

This news story from the BBC contains dramatic CCTV footage of a man hit by a truck. Apparently against the odds, he survives, and finds a new appreciation of his life.

Read this article, where footballer Patrice Muamba describes his ‘micaculous’ recovery after he effectively ‘died’ on pitch.

Or read here about a US clergyman cured of a chronic back complaint after praying to 19th Century Catholic theologian Cardinal Newman.

Some questions for discussion:

– What is your response to these story? Is it a miracle or is it just luck?

– Do you know any other stories that are difficult to explain? What do you believe about these?

– Have you ever had something happen to you that is unexplained? Or do you know anybody who has had a similar experience?

– What effect might stories like these have on somebody’s perspective on life or faith?
