Preaching in Jeans
Yesterday,for the second time in our deputation career, I had wardrobe issues. The first time was at a mission conference in Winston Salem, NC, when we forgot to pack dress pants for me. You can read about it here.
I do not know what it is about dress pants, but we forgot them again this weekend. Unfortunately, we were unable to get to a Wal-Mart in time to make the change.
The happy ending for this story is that the church we visited had absolutely no problem with my preaching in jeans. In fact, they encouraged me to ditch my tie and jacket as well.
I was amazed to find that preaching could actually be done in jeans. Many people came up after the sermon and mentioned how much they had appreciated the message. Nobody commented on the jeans.
I do not plan to make a habit of preaching in jeans, but I did get a glimpse of a congregation that knew what is important and what is not.
