lyonessWelcome!  I’m Kathleen, the Literate Lyoness, and I’m writing this blog to share thoughts and short essays from a biblically literate worldview with both Christians and non-Christians.

For more than three decades, I have regularly studied the Bible, listened to sermons, read theological articles, and participated in numerous Bible studies and group discussions. During two of those aforementioned decades, I worked in the fields of science, science education, and technical communications. I have been privileged to live among very intelligent and interesting people from many different ethnic, geographic, and religious (and non-religious) backgrounds. In fact, I was raised in a unique community where diversity seemed, in large part, accepted and even valued. A confluence of diverse influences have flowed into my life experience, and I am grateful for them. I hasten to add, however, that my experience probably has been more the exception than the rule. Differences are likely to have brought disunity and hatred into the lives of many people who visit this site, so I will try to tread gently. It is my hope that my blog will bring understanding, and perhaps even joy, to those who follow it.

I hope that you will join me in this adventure! Feel free to contact me at thelyoness@literatelyoness.com.

“No matter who we are, no matter what we do
Every day we can choose to say…

If You wanna steal my show, I’ll sit back and watch You go
If You got somethin’ to say, go on and take it away
Need You to steal my show, can’t wait to watch You go
So take it away.”
