WEBINAR: A New View of God and its Effects on Well-Being
Posted October 21, 2020

Date: Sunday, Nov.08, 2020 | Time: 2:00pm. | Find more information and register for on-line: (or) attend a live viewing at First Church of Christ, Scientist (10810-100 Ave.) or listen by phone. ||| ABOUT: Given up on religion? Is God a mystery? Learn how a new and changed perspective of God can bring healing and wholeness. International speaker Phillip Hockley relates how Christian Science gave him a new view of God that transformed his life. A view of God as Love itself, divine Love that loves us fully and equally. He also discovered that this loving God was not the source of his troubles, but the solution to them. Hockley, in presenting his talk, will draw on concepts from the Bible, especially Christ Jesus' life and teachings, as well as explanations from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, the text book of Christian Science written by Mary Baker Eddy. PRESENTER: Phillip Hockley is a practitioner of Christian Science healing and a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship. After a healing through Christian Science of a debilitating injury which was diagnosed as rendering him permanently disabled, Hockley was compelled to share the source of his healing with others dealing with similar physical challenges, discouragement and doubt. He says that the ability to love and be loved by God is the message he seeks to convey in his talks.

Book Launch
Compassion: A Global History of Social Policy
Posted January 15, 2019

Learn more about the book online

Date: Sat. February 2, 2019
Time: 6:00 pm
Venue: Ukrainian Centre, 11018-97 St., Edmonton. Refreshments provided by the Chilean community.
RSVP to: Please send an email to
The Book: In Compassion: A Global History of Social Policy, Alvin Finkel recounts stories – from the beginning of human history to the present day of grassroots efforts to improve life for the majority, and especially the most vulnerable. His book serves as a counterpoint to Yuval Harari's brilliant but unhopeful Sapiens. By zeroing in on countries on six continents in different periods, it demonstrates that struggles from below have resulted in efforts, successful to varying degrees, to produce egalitarian societies. While unsparing in documenting the inhumanity of ruling classes against which popular movements fought, Compassion traces the evolution of movements & governments that have focused on egalitarianism rather than economic growth and the societies they have constructed. In a mere 300 pages, Compassion provides a history of humanity with all its warts that emphasizes the lives of the people rather than the kings, lords, and magnates.
Review: ‘A book that manages to be simultaneously deep and global, ranging from our hunter-gatherer ancestors to the neo-liberal slash-backs of the 1980s. Who knew it was possible to write an epic panorama of the welfare state?’ – Peter Baldwin, UCLA and NYU, USA.
About the Author: Alvin Finkel is the author, co-author, or co-editor of 13 history books including Working People in Alberta: A History, History of the Canadian Peoples, The Chamberlain-Hitler Collusion, and Social Policy and Practice in Canada: A History. He is president of the Alberta Labour History Institute, professor emeritus of History at Athabasca University, and half of the writing team of Change Alberta.
