Should men wear neckties to church? Some threads have discussed women's attire, but what about men? A while age, one elderly woman was upset because the minister wore a colored shirt with a tie. She said ministers should only wear white shirts to church. In some churches, shorts and sandals are the typical dress for men in the summer. In our church, men wearing dress coats with no ties is starting to become a fad. Does any of this make any difference?
