About This Blog
The purpose of this blog is to create a two-way conversation – to be able to express honest opinions – and to get factual responses when Christian Science is incorrectly presented. This is accomplished partly through this blog, serving as an outreach for new and existing media.
It’s exciting to be involved in monitoring the correctness of statements made about Christian Science. This monitoring effort is not for the purpose of promoting or converting, but to inform. I welcome your questions and hope you’ll be in touch soon.

About the Committee on Publication
If you’re a member of the media in Southern California (blogger, reporter, editor, producer) who’s looking for someone to answer your questions, look no further. I’m here to respond to your interview requests and to answer any and all of your questions about Christian Science or The Church of Christ, Scientist.
This office is responsible for conveying correct information about Christian Science, its practices, and its discoverer, Mary Baker Eddy. The Committee also works with lawmakers and government regulators to help them understand Christian Science.
My role is not to speak on behalf of the members of the Christian Science Churches in Southern California, but rather to ensure that information in the public domain regarding Christian Science is correct. Frequently, that involves being interviewed. More often, I work behind the scenes with bloggers, reporters, editors, and producers to provide the resources they need to produce factually correct journalism.
About Don Ingwerson, CS
In 2006 I was appointed Christian Science Committee on Publication for Southern California. In this capacity, I oversee all media and legislative relations in Southern California on behalf of the Christian Science church headquartered in Boston, MA. I found Christian Science while in college and made a commitment at that time to serve the cause of Christian Science, which I have been able to do in both my secular and non-secular career.
My professional work has been in public education. I was honored to receive national acclaim as the Superintendent of Schools in Louisville, Kentucky and later named National Superintendent of the Year for America – where I was honored by former President George H. W. Bush in a ceremony at the White House. The Governor of Kentucky named a state day, “Don Ingwerson Day,” for the improvements I was able to make in education for Kentucky. My last educational appointment prior to becoming a full-time practitioner was Superintendent of the Los Angeles County Office of Education, an office serving 84 school districts.
