Breaking the Dress Code

1 comment:

  1. Very funny dialogue, Eddie, but still reflective of the times in which we live? Over the past year I visited two Independent Fundamental Baptist Churches--once strongholds of dress codes and short hair--and I saw about half the men in dungarees and polo shirts. There were also some trendy goatees to be seen. I'm old-fashioned--I still wear a tie to church when I visit one (but I don't claim a biblical mandate for doing so). The barricades are falling. I see in youth services at evangelical and charismatic churches kids wear ball caps even during prayer, not out of rebellion, but out of ignorance of the tradition. I wonder if the pendulum will ever swing back to formality (or even neatness)? --Gary in Omaha
