Clearwater, FL – Since July 2020, the Scientology Information Center in downtown Clearwater has been sharing examples of success and positivity to combat hate and strife in the world.

“These days, when you turn on main stream media or the nightly news, chances are you are going to hear about a break in, a car accident or a murder,” said Amber Skjelset, Manager of the Scientology Information Center. “It can be depressing or put one in fear. Rarely does one ever hear ‘good news.’”

In contrast, combatting negativity and the chaos in the world, the Scientology Information Center, located in the heart of downtown Clearwater, is filling that void by sharing positive stories and programs from the Scientology Network, DirecTV Channel 320 or every Sunday at 3:30pm since July this year.

The Scientology Network, launched in March 2018, gives an unprecedented look at the Churches of Scientology around the world, Scientologists and the impact of the world’s youngest major religion. Its all-original series include:

L. Ron Hubbard in His Own Voice, Inside Scientology, Destination: Scientology, Meet a Scientologist, Voices for Humanity and more.

“Programs such as Meet a Scientologist celebrate examples of people who come from different corners of the world, have different backgrounds and interests – but they are all Scientologists. These people share their stories of “staying the course” despite the ups and downs and how Scientology contributed to their success.

The most recent presentation was held on October 17th highlighting the episode of Mr. Jim Johnson, owner of Mr. Jim’s Pizza, from the series Meet a Scientologist. One guest, Lawrence, had this to say after watching it, “I like the fact that Mr. Jim never gave up. He failed in some areas but he stayed the course. These programs helped me understand better the concept of ‘staying the course.’”
