the Friday pickle: should worship leaders care about how they’re dressed?

Posted by Craig Borlase on 10 June 2014

 

You don’t have to click too far away from this page to find an image of a worship leader looking well styled. For some, it’s evidence of the Church taking seriously its calling to lead the way in creativity. For others, it’s wholly out of place and counter to the humility and selflessness that Christ modelled.  

What do you think? Do we have a problem here? Is a little bit of style OK? Are there lines which should never be crossed?  

Or is this one of the few examples when we can’t really learn that much from Keith Green?
