Pastors too 'scruffy'

An Anglican bishop in Sydney, Australia, dressed down clergy for looking too "scruffy," saying they usually "dress worse than the laypeople" in their congregations.

Bishop Robert Forsyth wrote at Sydney Anglicans that while "there is a way of dressing casual that looks really good ... there is a way that looks positively daggy [slovenly] and scruffy."

This is a non-issue.  Jesus takes us as we are, not as we are dressed....He looks at our hearts.
