Losing focus

"'Dress is a fine art,' intoned the Presbyterian Banner; 'if a woman has no natural taste in dress she must be a little deficient in her appreciation of the beautiful.' This from a denomination that only a decade before had referred to worldly interests as a 'disease' and had criticized women who spent any time on their appearance, particularly on the Sabbath. Now the message was 'Enjoy the present....the blessings of this day if God sends them.'"

Very interesting, peter stearns.
