Things can seem bleak when we see so much human suffering, perhaps even among our own family members or neighbors. However, sometimes these very circumstances spur individuals to find new ways to help and heal.

An example of someone who did just that is Phillip Hockley, a practitioner of Christian Science healing and international speaker. After living for years with a debilitating injury diagnosed as permanently disabling, Hockley began investigating ways to improve his situation. As part of his search, he attended a lecture on Christian Science.

“During that lecture,” Hockley said, “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.”

After the difference Christian Science made in his own life, Hockley knew he needed to share it with others dealing with similar mindsets of discouragement. “From that moment on, I knew I had found something very special, and could hardly wait to explain this experience to others—this ability to love and be loved by God,” he said.

Hockley now speaks to audiences all over the world on Christian Science, introducing its core principles. He will present his talk, “A new view of God and its effect on well-being,” on Saturday, June 11 at 11 a.m. Those interested can watch online individually or in-person with others in Solvang. Information is below.

In his lecture, Hockley will draw on concepts from the Bible, particularly Christ Jesus’ life and teachings, as well as explanations from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, the textbook of Christian Science.

As well as lecturing nationally and internationally on Christian Science, Hockley maintains a healing ministry and is a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.
