Josh Bush, son of the late L. Russ Bush, III, is one of the most insightful thinkers I know. He gets it from his dad. He is a chemical engineer, having earned his Ph.D. from Texas A&M. His blog, “Latch onto This,” contains several well written and persuasive posts on a host of issues.
In this particular post, Bush takes on a somewhat controversial topic. It used to be more controversial than it is now, because it seems that the only people wearing suits to church are old people and visitors. Regular attenders at any one church usually are dressed pretty casual, at least in Baptist churches.
Does it matter what we wear to church? Does God care about such things? Should we care? Here is a taste of Josh’s post:
People seem to forget that your clothing speaks. Clothing is not personal. Clothing is what you are showing everyone else. If you follow the warnings of the previous scripture references, it will show up in your clothing. Non-verbal communication is still important when you go to church. The apostle Paul obviously thought non-verbal communcation as it applies to clothing absolutely did matter.
