Through the lens of God's Science

A Conversation with Al Carnesciali

From the February 2011 issue of The Christian Science Journal

When I called Al Carnesciali recently, the first thing I asked him was, “Where are you?” 

I knew he was in California, but not where exactly. And Al said, “I’m in San Juan Capistrano, a couple of miles from the ocean. It’s a sunny day, the wind is starting to pick up. I can see the green hills to the east of me, and even though I can’t see the ocean, I can smell it.” San Juan Capistrano, he explained, lies “about 60 miles or so south of Los Angeles. It’s right between LA and San Diego.”

Turns out there was a lot I didn’t know about Mr. Carnesciali that went way beyond where he calls home. I didn’t know, for example, that he had been a Trustee of The Christian Science Publishing Society (publisher of the Journal). Or that he had also been a member of the Christian Science Board of Directors. Or that prior to serving in those capacities, he had pursued successful careers in government and aerospace.
