No Metrosexuals In My Church

If you show up to my church, you won’t see a metrosexual worship leader.  You will find a mom and elder/pastor’s wife singing with a group of people who would be the furthest thing from metrosexual.  But if someone did that, they would be welcomed and would fit right in.

You won’t find a pastor preaching in an Armani suit.  In fact, he will probably be wearing what he would wear any other day of the week.  There is no fancy pulpit, no hip stool for him to sit on.  Just a music stand that he puts his Bible and notes on.

There isn’t anything fancy about where we worship.  A multi-functional building that serves and worship area and fellowship hall all rolled into one.

Our music is not going to win you over if you want the standard, old hymns that we all grew up on.  We might sing some, but it won’t be like your momma and daddy, or even you, did back in the day.

People might lift a hand.  Or both.  Some might jump up and down for a minute.  Others might stand there and not move, like me.

There may be millionaires in the service.  Or others poorer than a church mouse.

None of that matters.

In Christ, in reality, there are none of these things.  Just like there were neither Jew nor Greek, slave or free, male or female in Christ, none of these are anything in Christ.

We are all just one in Christ.  Even if we are or aren’t a metrosexual.

Are you one in Christ with those of us who follow Christ?

    The church I pastor tries not to be pretentious. We dress casual, not trying to impress anyone. I wear jeans/slacks and a casual shirt. I haven’t worn a tie in years (since I came here in ’05). I have worn a casual “T” before. We have those who raise their hands (I do) and those who don’t. Our worship area has an industrial look by design. Our worship music is done with keyboards, drums, guitar, bass and singers. Most of all, we seek to worship and honor God. I’m with you my friend.

    So not skinny jeans or deep v necks for you? Great stuff as always. I love the line “they would be welcomed…”

      And no scarves around their necks either. But we do have lots of jeans, camo and some jorts.
