What Not to Wear

She could have called the site Church Fashion Sucks. But Beauty Tips for Ministers works, too. Victoria Weinstein, a Unitarian Universalist minister who goes by the handle PeaceBang, launched the fashion blog to encourage the “defrumpification of the American clergy.”

Weinstein makes it clear in a recent Boston Globe story that fashion isn’t the greatest concern for clergy, but it still matters:

“Anyone who is in a position of leadership has to consider what image they’re projecting, and that goes for clergy too,” she said. “The problem with frumpiness isn’t so much aesthetic as it is a problem of looking as though you are not paying attention to the world and that you are not part of today’s world … They will not be willing to hear us in the same way if we look like we walked out of 1972.”

While I don’t necessarily agree with Ms. Weinstein’s doctrine, I do agree with her sensibilty regarding the need to look good.
