Thank you all for your support of our healing services and lecture by Phillip Hockley CS given at our church.
Join us for a free talk on spirituality titled “A new view of God and its effect on well-being” to be given by Christian Science healer, Phillip Hockley, CS. His inspiring personal story began with a fall that resulted in spinal injury and many subsequent conditions that left him severely handicapped. After years of pain and struggle and searching for ways to cope, he reluctantly attended a Christian Science Lecture – and was healed completely of all debilitating conditions. This began his gradual understanding and acceptance of the truths revealed in the Bible and Mary Baker Eddy’s seminal work, “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures”, the textbook of Christian Science.
Our Church is sponsoring a lecture entitled: A NEW VIEW OF GOD AND ITS EFFECT ON WELL-BEING to be given by Phillip Hockley C.S. in our church auditorium on Sunday, February 2, 2020, at 2 PM. All are invited to this free talk. Please invite your friends and join us for this healing message.
On the beach in Avalon my friend and I went to walk down to the jetty. The water was very rough and when it crashed up against the rocks it would splash up over our heads. As my friend and I were walking on the jetty, we were taking pictures and having a lot of fun. We were looking to see if any of the pictures turned out when a big wave crashed and got us soaking wet. We started laughing until we noticed that some girl had gotten blown off of the other end of the jetty. She was OK, but she had lost her prescription glasses. She was from another country and English was not her first language. After about 20 minutes of searching for her glasses, we started thinking these glasses were gone. At this moment I asked God for a “miracle” to find these glasses. This girl was crying and needed these glasses. All of a sudden I grabbed the glasses out of the water and ran over to her. I could feel God’s Love and was thankful for this healing experience.
What blessings can come from quiet, God-filled moments! I’m so grateful for one such moment I experienced over the Christmas season.
It was dinnertime and I was slicing a large cut of meat for a stir-fry dish. The knife was quite dull, making the job more difficult than it needed to be. Right then my husband passed through the kitchen and I asked if he would sharpen a few of my most-used knives. He did an excellent job. When I resumed cutting the beef, I found that the knife slipped through it like it was butter – and then through my finger. Looking down I realized that I had sliced off the top of my index finger, including part of the nail. It began to bleed profusely, so I grabbed a paper towel and wrapped it tightly.
While fixing dinner, I was listening to a favorite CD of Christmas choral music. At this critical moment, the music was particularly lush with the glorious transcendent quality that characterizes so much of this particular musical genre. I sat down at the kitchen table, closed my eyes, and found my thought completely caught up in the simple idea of the glory of God. The clear realization of His powerful ever-presence was mirrored in the pure and soaring musical line right then. For just a minute or two, my whole being felt filled with God’s allness.
Keeping the finger bandaged over the next few days seemed wise, and I also deferred to another pianist at church to play for our Wednesday evening service that week. But I continued to pray to know that the palpable sense of God’s glory and power I had felt earlier, even for just a brief moment, governed my whole being, precluding any accident that could suggest that God wasn’t in complete and continuous control. Within just a matter of days (what seemed a remarkable short span of time) the end of my finger rounded out perfectly and the nail grew back normally. Both index fingers, extended out side-by-side, looked exactly the same. Today it is impossible to tell which finger had been cut.
I’m so grateful for those crystalline moments when we can so clearly sense God’s all-encompassing love and presence – right where we are!
