Intro to “Sara’s Musings”

bloggingWelcome to Sara’s Musings on WordPress.com. I originally created this blog site on July 20, 2010, as my first experience with blogging and it took me a while to get the hang of it. I wrote a number of posts from July 20, 2010, through April 2011 and then ended up deleting all of them because they were “all over the place” with no consistent theme which was frustrating.

I resurrected my blog in July 2011 and from that point on it just took off! It currently contains over 270 blog posts and within these pages I’ve blogged about how I have integrated my Christian faith with the challenges brought on by long-term unemployment (which started on April 21, 2009, and is still ongoing) and also from issues going on in our society and within Christianity in America today. It is my personal blog and I discuss a wide variety of issues affecting Christians and how we can live out our faith while navigating through all of the challenges present in our secular society. I’ve also written about what it is like to be long-term unemployed (almost five years now).

Some of what I have written is not always popular within mainstream Christianity in America today; however, I do not write as an outsider to the human race. No, we are all in this together. Unfortunately, so often in the past several decades we’ve forgotten to take seriously the “hard” parts of the Bible we don’t want to hear or we ignore the passages we don’t like or we rarely even read the Bible. We often want the blessings that come with being Christian without any of the costs (as in the cost of discipleship). And Jesus had a lot to say about that–how we are to live if we are really His disciples–and it has nothing to do with living just like the rest of our culture with a little “God talk” thrown in to make us sound good. And it’s time to get back to the basics of real Christianity and not just acclimating our beliefs to the culture all around us.

Thank you very much for visiting my site! It’s a writer’s dream and privilege to have readers . . . and that means you!
