I'm here to answer your questions, respond to interview requests, and be a resource to you for information about Christian Science.

Here's a two-minute clip from "Chords of Memory," — a documentary by OETA-Oklahoma public television's award-winning series Stateline. It features Kari Mashos talking about Bible-based healing through prayer.
I introduced Kari to OETA for this interview. She's a Christian Science practitioner and national speaker on the topic of spirituality and health.
Looking for a national speaker? Please contact me for details.
The University of Oklahoma invited me to its cable TV show, "Exploring Religions." This half-hour program highlights various denominations and faith traditions in the Norman area. I was asked to discuss Christian Science and its Founder, Mary Baker Eddy. Really enjoyed meeting the host and television crew. — Thanks OU for doing this series!
Tulsa Community College interviewed local church member Ray Earley for the documentary, "Cathedrals of Downtown Tulsa." This film takes a look at some of the cathedral-style churches in the city, including First Church of Christ, Scientist, Tulsa — located at the corner of E. 10th Street and S. Boulder Avenue. The segment featuring Christian Science begins at 28-minutes.
The University of Oklahoma's "Breaking Barriers" is an informal, open discussion talk show where public officials, educators, business leaders and more, pair up to share perspectives about reaching common ground in the community. I was asked to join Professor David Dary, former broadcast journalist and past Director of OU's College of Journalism, to discuss media and communication.
