Why don’t people wear their Sunday Best for church any more?
A lot of older churchgoers (that is, my generation) seem to be worried about that lately.
I’d like to respond to that question with a couple of my own.
When did the members of my generation become such old fogeys? And why do they care so much about something that matters so little?
Yet that is part of a growing sentiment from my peers.
Have we forgotten how devalued we felt when they told us our music was too loud, our clothing looked silly and our opinions were wrong? It didn’t make us want to worship their way. It made us want to leave the church. And many of us did – never to return.
