Church President in shorts?

No, not our Church President, but the President of the Community of Christ (formerly the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints or RLDS). Someone with a Blogger blog has posted about some work at a camp they are doing. The last picture in the post is of President Stephen M. Veazey. It’s also interesting seeing all of the guitars behind him.

I’m not commenting on whether this is a good thing or a bad thing (I really don’t have an opinion), but it’s interesting to see the way President Veazey was dressed. If President Monson were at a similar function, he’d still be in his white shirt. On the one hand, seeing the President dressed formally helps you recognize that he is a man of God. On the other hand, seeing the President dressed casually helps him fit in a little more and might help the youth feel closer to him.

  1. I remember seeing a picture of George Albert Smith at a Boy Scout Jamboree, wearing a scout uniform, which included pants halfway to the knee.
