The subject of Randy Berger’s Aug. 7 letter on “Church dress code” is, frankly, ludicrous and laughable. No one attends a religious service to be wowed by fashion or to be reminded who is in change by who is wearing which uniform.
Although “business attire,” both formal and casual, have become more readily available price-wise, the message at church is expected to be governed by one’s heart, mind and soul. Blue jeans and a t-shirt can clothe higher love as well as can Brooks Brothers.
In these times of unspeakable acts against our fellow human beings, can we really afford the time or effort taken to critique fashion in the pulpit and the pews?
