Biblical Interpretation & Southern Gospel Fashion
—– Can we over-interpret the Bible? One well known, highly regarded, and conservative Theology professor… Moises Silva thinks so, and displays an illustration of the possible aftermath of doing such a thing. An excerpt here.
two fashion statements in southern gospel?
—– Apparently, a new fashion trend going around some southern gospel circles is this. Magnetic collar stays. Maybe we’ll see the resurgence of the Clip-On Tie soon.
—– Artists love their attire. And these are gaining some popularity as well. Awesome shoes – with a cross.
Next time you’re at a Southern Gospel concert, check out the shoes. You might have to ask about the magnetic collar stays…
Which leads me to…
—– Give me some suggestions for an All-Hair Quartet.
We may go historically or currently, but I need your guesses first. For instance, does anyone have more perfect hair than Ivan Parker? Still jet black after all these years and clearly the stache adds to the frame of his head. I don’t think the style has ever drastically changed. Guy Penrod seems like a rather easy choice, but he’ll be considered. I’ve always thought Bill Gaither has had awesome hair…very fluffy with a tint of grey and orange…strange but awesome. So he could sing bass. I don’t want to “exclude” hair pieces, but just because it is a hair piece does not add to its probability of winning. Same goes for those who are balding and neglect to cover it up. They can’t help genetics and bald jokes aren’t mean or offensive, but they do get less and less funny since they are told so often. I don’t know how closely I’ll look at GVB or EHSS. Most of it is too much in style. For instance David Phelps could qualify, but it might just be too pretty and in-style to consider taking home the prize. Devin McGlamery might fit though. It looks so purposefully misplaced. I kinda like it. So list your thoughts below and tell your friends.
Let’s celebrate those who show their diversity and willingness to adapt to the culture of hair, for hair styles are always changing and also those who stay as strong as a stone wall and refuse to change with the times. I have mad respect for both groups.
—– And for what it’s worth – “Abandon Kansas”, a Christian alternative rock band on Toby Mac’s Gotee Records released a free EP on Amazon MP3 Downloads. Obviously, the message in the lyrics are somewhat vague…but most of it is positive, and if you like Alternative Rock, it’s decent music. And free. Here’s the link… But I have a sneaking suspicion most of you won’t download.
