Sunday March 10, 2019: "A new view of GOD and its effect on well-being"
We are grateful for the talk about "A new view of GOD and its effect on well-being", by Mr. Phillip Hockley, an international speaker and practitioner of Christian Science healing and a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship. Mr. Hockley spoke to a packed audience at our church on March 10, 2019, after sharing his lecture three times on March 9th with inmates at local correctional institutions. You can learn more about Mr. Hockley and view his calendar of future lectures on his profile page at https://www.christianscience.com/lecturers/phillip-hockley
"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 after that and I became a healthy man after many years of suffering." Phillip Hockley, CS.

Sunday January 22, 2017: "Christian Science - What it is and how it heals"
On January 22, 2017 our church hosted a free public talk by Michelle Nanouche, CSB o on “Christian Science - What It Is and How it Heals” A video replay of the lecture is available on the lecturer's web site here.
The challenging problems we face today demand a fresh approach to solutions. We can no longer afford to overlook or sweep aside spirituality as key to making real progress on the questions that relate to life and health. International speaker Michelle Nanouche says, “Through honest talk about the questions skeptics ask, I give a one hour talk that tackles the essentials of Christian Science – its theology, its Christianity and its relevance today.” Nanouche explores a variety of questions, including “Isn't healing a question of purely physical factors based on a patient's biology and genetic make-up, then applying drugs and surgery to correct it?” “Does prayer still have a role in healing in light of modern medical advancements?” “Are we just talking about positive thinking or is there something more to Christian Science?” “How is Christian Science considered scientific when it excludes matter and material methods in its approach to healing?” and “Is it safe?”
Nanouche offerred compelling examples – including a crippling leg injury – from her professional practice of healing to illustrate the “how to” of Christian Science treatment. Her ideas are based on the teachings of Jesus as recorded in the Bible, and as discussed in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, the discoverer and founder of Christian Science.
Michelle Nanouche is a Christian Science practitioner and teacher listed in The Christian Science Journal, and a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship. She trained and practiced as a Christian Science Nurse for 10 years before changing her focus from nursing care to the practice of Christian Science healing. She brings over 30 years of professional healing experience to her work as a practitioner and teacher of Christian Science. She has lectured on the subject of prayer and health throughout the US, Africa and Europe and was the contact person for information on Christian Science to public authorities, the legislature and the media for several years in New Jersey, USA.
