Bishop Gerald Kennedy shares a story from his days as a student at Yale Divinity School about an ongoing debate among the faculty and student body over the proper attire for seminary students. The faculty considered dress clothes appropriate: students were comfortable with casual wear. The debate took form on the bulletin board. A faculty member posted a note quoting Isaiah 2:1, “Awake, put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city.” In response, a student posted Matthew 6:25, “Do not be anxious about your life, nor about your body, what you shall put on.”
