A 16-page zine published through The ARCH-HIVE that reimagines common tropes in Mormon prayers as folk magic spells.
Both magic and religion seek to alter lived reality through ritual acts & phrases. Are our current practices really so removed from folk beliefs? We pray for rain, anoint with oil for healing, and write names on slips of paper in hopes of blessing someone going through a hard time. Why are we afraid of magic when we practice magic every day? Why does some magic feel more comfortable than others?
This book is an exploration of magic and religion and whether we should see them as being at odds.
