Concerning Life as It Is Supposed to Be

White/Gold and Blue/Black Sermons

Ah, the Dress. By now we all know about The Dress. One color combination to one group of people; a different combination to another. The phenomenon was all the rage and ‘so last week’.


This is a phenomenon well known to any preacher. Several weeks ago I met with a friend on a Tuesday morning, and he got serious with me.

“Randy, I want to tell you this as a friend. Sunday’s sermon was way too long. I even checked with my wife, and she agreed.”

I take such things to heart. But then I don’t know what to do with them when the next day I hear from another.

“Randy, when is that sermon going to be posted online? It was so helpful and I need to hear it again.”

I asked if it was too long and, as expected, the answer was, “Heaven’s no.”

There is nothing new under the sun. Just occasionally, the Internet notices it.

    Well, I didn’t know about “The Dress” but I do now. (And, for the record, I see white and gold.) But I thought your use of this analogy was a good one. Two people hearing the exact same sermon will hear two entirely different things. Preach on, and don’t worry about it! 🙂
