Here’s the first shirt we’ve ever offered from one of our “Back Page” designs from the magazine. This one was on the back of the Mar/Apr 2007 issue #124 (which had Maylene & the Sons of Disaster on the front cover … it was our long-awaited Anberlin cover story, but that’s another controversial and long story…). This design was done by Kelly Benson, who tweaked a photo of Aaron Weiss on the mainstage at Cornerstone the previous year. Aaron has mixed feelings about this shirt. On one hand, he doesn’t care if a shirt has his image on it or the Queen of England’s image. He’s hesitant to say that he’s worshiping God while playing the accordion, but the purpose of the shirt for us is just to be a cool shirt. The deeper meaning for us might be to INSPIRE WORSHIP, but not necessarily to declare that the person in the image is worshiping. One way you could clarify the issue, of course, would be to get the shirt and worship God while wearing it.
