Pants and Ties

Anyone going to church on Wednesdays has noticed two interesting changes:

1. All, and I mean ALL, male leadership are no longer wearing ties. No ushers, no deacons, no pastors, no one in any leadership position. No one. And the youth leaders are wearing khakis and a thin brown t-shirt.

2. A good number of the women in the church that used to wear dresses and skirts are now wearing pants.

I really don't care what people wear to church.

But its very obvious that an edict went out to the leadership of the church: NO TIES ON WEDNESDAY FOR MALE LEADERSHIP. Or they got the hint from Jim Smyrl preaching about ties.

But if it wasn't an edict from the pastor of "NO MORE TIES", wouldn't logic be that some WOULD wear ties while others didn't?

What's so wrong with ties on Wednesday that would cause the pastor to tell the leadership of our church to not wear them anymore.

Things get more bizarre by the week.
