Does apparel make theMinister?
We have a new Minister at our church and we love his sermons. But, he is a younger man and wears T-shirts and casual trousers while he is preaching. I think he should at least wear a suit, I know he probably will not wear the vestments of our church. My kids say "what difference does it make?" "Does it change the message he is giving?" I say he is the leader and should distinguish himself from the general audience. That your dress probably does equate authority. A leader should be respected from all angles.....??? I think we have become too casual as a population. I know it doesn't change his sermon, but come on now, he is the head of our church, let's dress like a leader!
