About

I’m Lainie Petersen and this is my site.

I’m a freelance writer, clergy in an independent church, theater correspondent (Playtime with Bill Turck and Kerri Kendall on WCGO, 1590AM & 95.9 FM), co-host of The Gnostic Wisdom Network’s Talk Gnosis, and co-host of Hard Lens Media‘s Thursday Show (YouTube).

(It goes without saying that this blog is entirely my own work and anything I say here should not be construed as an opinion also held by one of the outlets for which I write or present. It is also true that opinions expressed by other people on those outlets are not mine. I shouldn’t have to say any of this, but here we are.)

I hold Master of Divinity and Master of Theological Studies degrees from Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary (1997 and 2006, respectively), and a Master of Libary and Information Science from Dominican University (2007). 

LainiePetersen.com has had several permutations over the years. I expect that this latest version will be a collection of my online work/appearances, as well as writing on my current interests, which include consumer advocacy, media integrity, disaster and emergency preparedness, wine, and religion.

I don’t allow commenting on this blog and prefer to allow my writing and other media content to speak for itself. I don’t respond to correspondence unless it involves a business matter, such as from company owners who want me to review a product. If you fall into this category, fill out this form and I’ll get back to you.
