An important hearing took place in our state today. I was not able to attend, but I am reading comments and thoughts from colleagues who were there, and contemplating collars.
You see, I don't have one.
I've never worn one, or attended a UCC church where the pastor wore a collar, and since I grew up Southern Baptist, that's no help. I don't even know what kind I would wear or what purveyor to patronize.
I would like to be better prepared if the opportunity to wear one as a sign and symbol of office meaningful to the general population should arise again. What are the guiding principles of collar-wearing?
