So What's With the Robes?

Rev. Robert Cunningham at Tates Creek Presbyterian Church has a good, solid blog post on why some clergy wear robes during worship. The fourth section, “The Robe Creates a Culture,” gets a little sanctimonious and contains reasoning that I think could be applied to wearing more casual attire as well (which I think is very much warranted in some times and places). However, overall it’s a great article and if you have ever wondered why Jenny and I “robe up” for Sunday mornings, this would be a great place to start.
