Skimming through today's mail, I saw an invitation from a certain seminary for pastors to attend a Day of Homiletical Reflection -- essentially a workshop on preaching. And the guy doing the presenting has a ponytail.

Now, I know I'm not supposed to judge a book by its cover. And I know there are some pretty great men out there who have (or had) long hair.

But still... there's something in me that squirms over the thought that the guy who is going to give instruction to pastors in how to preach
is a guy with a ponytail.

  1. One of the best preachers (Law and Gospel-type) was at an Indian reservation in NE; and he had a ponytail!
