Talk by Phillip Hockley CSB
Masonic Hall, The Hill, Merrywalks, Stroud GL5 4EP
SUNDAY 19th NOVEMBER at 2.00pm
After sustaining a debilitating injury which was diagnosed as rendering 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.’
After the difference Christian Science made in his own life, Phillip 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 says.
