Joel Magnes
Christian Science Committee on Publication for Minnesota

The Committee
If you’re part of the Minnesota media needing accurate information on Christian Science, its practices or its discoverer and founder, Mary Baker Eddy, I’m your source!   Turn to me for answers on all things Christian Science.  My job is to make sure that what’s in the public domain about Christian Science is correct.

Despite the title, I’m not the publishing arm of the Christian Science church nor do I speak for individual church members. And my purpose isn’t to promote or to convert.  Instead, I meet with reporters, editors, producers to ensure that they have the facts and not the myths about Christian Science.

I’m available for interviews and contribute op-ed pieces and blog posts.  I also work with lawmakers and government regulators to help them understand how Minnesota statutes may affect the practice Christian Science.  There are Committees on Publication in every US state and throughout the world providing information in these ways.

The Blog
This blog will share stories that speak to the heart and open up thought to consider what’s possible.  So many today are moving beyond traditional approaches to health and the blog will highlight some of those stories and share my own.

My goal is to engage in a conversation with anyone out there wanting to understand more of how our thinking and especially our spirituality affect health.  There are healing breakthroughs going on that defy conventional limitations.  Everyone needs to know.  I’d love to talk with you about it!

The Author
All my life I’ve had a deep desire to help people.  I was that guy in high school who friends turned to for comfort and counsel.  As an adult that desire has taken form in my work as a Christian Science Practitioner – responding to individual requests for treatment through prayer to help bring healing.  To learn more, visit my website:  ChristianScienceHealing.me.

I see this Committee activity as healing work also.  It’s inspiring to watch people’s faces as misconceptions about Christian Science give way to the truth.

After studying acting at Boston University and then preparing for a career as an operatic tenor, I found Christian Science on my own search for health.  Not only did I find healing but, after growing up with no religious beliefs, I discovered what Christianity is and that changed my course.  I’ve been in the public practice of Christian Science for over 23 years now.

I’m a transplanted New Yorker, living in Minneapolis with my wife Brenda, a canine behaviorist (think dog whisperer), Rafi, a charming Havanese dog and Wally, a chubby orange tabby cat.
