Today, I came across a group of folks that had tattoos up one arm, down the arm, and on the neck, as well as other publicly viewable areas on the body! Along with that, some had metal rings and bars in their ears, nose, lips, chin and eyebrows! I got to thinking, if someone came to your church and accepted Jesus; attended faithfully over a matter of months or even years; attended your church membership and introduction to church history classes, etc., and applied to work as a deacon or Sunday School teacher or lead the youth. Would your leadership team consider them for the roles, or would you deny based on the skin art and body mutilation? This is going to be a problem the church will face more and more in the coming years so it needs to be discussed. Also, have you in fact, employed as paid or volunteer staff any folks with skin art and or metal art, or both?
