Churches that practice head covering are a minority in the Western World. Those who are visiting these churches for the first time will immediately notice the distinction between men and women and many will wonder (especially those who are not Christians) what it means. On many church websites there are sections for frequently asked questions, beliefs and/or a page telling visitors what they can expect when visiting. We’d like to share some examples of church websites that do mention head covering and how they introduce the topic to potential visitors. Read more

The latest issue of Premier Christianity is now available. This month they’re having a “female focus” and as part of it they’ve featured an article by Heather Tomlinson entitled My Headcovering Experiment. The magazine cover reads, “From feminism to head coverings: challenging how society and the Church define gender roles.” You can read her article in full here.
Though she doesn’t advocate head covering (as a command) or complementarian roles, we’d like Heather for the positive article, the mention, and for bringing attention to this topic. Our prayer is that through this article, many will be led to give prayerful thought and study of 1 Corinthians 11:2-16. If you’re visiting us from Premier Christianity you can view our guided study of this topic here.
