My husband and I just moved to a new community. We found a church that we liked, but noticed that several young people wore shorts to service. Isn't that improper in a church? Our former church never had anyone wear such outfits. I was tempted to say something to one young lady, but my husband told me to mind my own business. Don't you think that it's disrespectful to dress in that manner? Isn't there a church dress code?
These days, it's more important that there are young people attending church service and not worry about what they wear. If your pastor thinks that it's disrespectful, then he should be the one to say something. Since you are new to the community, try to go with the flow, relax, and be more open-minded. Remember, it's not how they look, it's how they are.
