  • We thank Thee, heavenly Father,
    For Thy correcting rod,
    Which guides us in our journey
    And leads us home to God.
    It tells us not of anger,
    The weapon mortals sway,
    But Love divine, that helps us
    To keep the better way.

A new view of God and its effect on well-being —
a free one hour online talk

Saturday October 16, 2021 – 11:00 am PT
Hosted by First Church of Christ, Scientist, White Rock

Things can seem bleak when we see all the kinds of suffering going on in humanity, perhaps even among our own family members or neighbours. But sometimes these very circumstances spur individuals to find new ways to help and heal.  Divine Love erases suffering from our lives as naturally as sunrise banishes night.

Phillip Hockley, CS
After sustaining a debilitating injury which rendered him permanently disabled, Phillip Hockley began investigating ways to improve his situation.  Along the course of his search, he attended a lecture on Christian Science.  ‘During that lecture,’ he says, ‘I found something that was indeed life-transforming. Christian Science gave me a new view of God that I’d not had before: a view of God as Love itself, divine Love that loved me fully. I also discovered that this loving God was not the source of my troubles (which were many) but the solution to them. My life began to improve quickly and I became a healthy man.’ 

Phillip is a Christian Science practitioner and member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.
