Still Reverent

American culture has become obsessed with casual. Having invaded every major
institution including schools, businesses, and courtrooms, each of these have already lived to regret
it. It is rare to find a serious classroom or courtroom that promotes “dress as you want” and “drink
as you please”. On the other hand, it is just as rare to find a church that doesn’t. We still believe
that the presence of a Holy God deserves our attempt to express respect and reverence; not
because it impresses Him, but because it affects our own hearts and attitudes. Reverence is a
fading virtue in America, not because God no longer deserves it, but because churches no longer
promote it. While we believe God deserves our best, we don’t try to police what that is. A
judgmental spirit can often be worse than casual dress.
