Fifth Sunday after Epiphany
This Sunday we are going to consider clothing, current fashion trends, and how to be sure that we are dressed appropriately for all our activities. I'm sure you will agree that many people are dressed inappropriately, even shamefully (!!). Perhaps, if you are like me, you notice from time to time that your own clothing is inadequate at least, if not a total fail. On top of this, it's true, we don't have the means to dress in a manner which suits our God-given dignity as his Children, nor do we always possess the right judgement in this respect. Thankfully, Jesus wants us to be properly clothed and he is willing to help us. The Apostle Paul was noted for his solid teaching regarding how Christians ought to clothe themselves, and his writings exhibit timeless good taste.
