This is Still True.

January 17, 2024

I’m feeling particularly perky this morning, so I’m just gonna give this to you for free. I wrote this 7 years ago when Trump, Hillary, and Bernie were the faces of polity and thought.

When There is No Vision, the People Perish…and Worse

January 16, 2024

We are there. This is the cusp we are on as a party, as a people. We have no vision. We have lost the goal and thus tire ourselves running in wrong directions only to win nothing.

The Test of Christianity… Should Probably Include Christ.

January 9, 2024

Don’t convolute a litmus test for what is Christianity with sentiment or kindness. A fruit of the Spirit, or from the Vine, is NOT THE VINE.

Close proximity to the vine does not a branch make you. In-ness, not nearness, Friend. Come see the difference.

Happy New Year!!

January 2, 2024

Where do we get this idea that God’s plans for us include starting strong and finishing poorly?     Think of every person in the Bible that waited until the turn of a calendar year to be who God called them to be, to do what God called them to do. “Yes, Lord! …In January.”…

Polity and the Pulpit

December 6, 2023

There is a significant voting block that is no longer predictable in its voting or convictions.   Christianity is suffering an identity crisis, but it is not because of our Christ.

Salty Squares to Share

IMG_0678

Greetings, from Planet Texas!

I am Sara Johnson, aka Salty Lady... I/Am/Her   #weddisexual #husbisexual (Super into the man I married.)

My husband, Andy, and I have served in churches for almost 20 years together. We have 2 teens and 3 dogs.

I was a prodigal and am the product of a good God and praying parents.  I have been sober 21 years, serving God for 20 and salty, in one form or the other, my whole life. I've done time with the cradles and the choir, missions and middle school, seniors and saints... and I love the Body of Christ, cankles and all. 

Hey Salty Lady exists to bring clarity, common sense, and a Christian worldview to cultural, political, and evangelical issues. Polity, the pulpit, and all God's sheeple are indelibly linked for better or worse. So be wise we must, to walk humbly and just in a world that grows weary in waiting.

Bear up, Buttercup. There may indeed be dark days ahead, but you were made for them. Be bold. Be brave. Our guy wins.

Shalom Y'all!

SJ
