The wearing of fabric head coverings in worship was universally the practice of Christian women until the twentieth century. What happened? Did we suddenly find some biblical truth to which the saints for thousands of years were blind? Or were our biblical views of women gradually eroded by the modern feminist movement that has infiltrated the Church...? - R.C. Sproul

Writing Break: Back in January

Hey everyone, just a quick message to let you know that we’ll be taking a short break from posting. This is a needed hiatus to be able to work on the head covering book. It’s hard to find time to work on it when you’re crafting articles and filming videos, so I need some dedicated away-time to focus. We’ll be back in mid-January with regular posts again and hopefully the book will be ready for editing shortly after that.

While we’re gone please continue to send us links about head covering, share your covering testimony (women and pastors) and we’re also open for guest posts (just send us an e-mail with your idea).

Shining a spotlight on the head covering discussion happening worldwide.

  • Oh, I Submit Alright…But to What? (Enhance Lives)
    “I believe we can get out of this cycle of slipping back into worldly submission. Join me. We must submit to God…Here’s my plan: Head covering and growing my hair out. A symbol of submission that is tangible.”
  • Headcoverings: Now and Forever or Then and Now Never? (A Kiwi and an Emu)
    “It’s said that the first step towards solving a problem is to admit we have one. And we have one. We don’t like headcoverings. In fact, we don’t like them so much, that we approach this passage of Scripture trying to find ways to avoid applying it.”
  • How to Stand Out in Church (Truth at Home)
    “In a church where there about 3,000 attendees, I have discovered that there is one way to stick out for sure: wear a headcovering. When I first began to headcover, I felt so awkward and weird.”
  • The Biblical Pattern of the Local Church – Part 2 and Part 3 (Inside the Bible Weekly)
    “This section is vital, for it is neglected by far to many ‘churches.’ This is the teaching of Headship and the head covering, found in 1 Corinthians 11:1-15. Many raise objections to it. Many are undecided about it. And some would say that this applies at all times. What does Scripture teach?”

Covering Testimony: Irina Glazkova

1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

Hi, my name is Irina Glazkova and I’m a single, Christian woman who is originally from Russia. I’ve been in Canada since September 2007. Before that, I lived in the USA for 11 months as an exchange student. I accepted Lord Jesus as savior at the age of 12 after searching through many different philosophies. During my childhood and early teens I had been bullied a lot mostly because I was born with deformed limbs and I have had seven surgeries. When I was born, doctors tried to convince my mom to leave me at the hospital because I was very sick and had physical deformities. Sadly, this is a common practice in Russia and in most post-Soviet countries. My mom refused. She sacrificed so much for my well-being. My biggest dream is to see my family come to Salvation. Bullying led me to search for the truth. I just couldn’t come to terms that there was no justice. I used to go with my mom to a Russian Orthodox church. However, I was conflicted by praying to saints, kneeling in front of icons and many other things. While in the United States I lived in Baptist pastor’s family. This is where my faith began to grow. I was seventeen years old at this point. While living in the United States I considered studying in Canada. A lady from my current church (Faith Bible Chapel) came to the USA for her son’s graduation. In addition, Memorial University of Newfoundland gave me an entrance scholarship. The Lord lead me here to Newfoundland. I enjoy hikes, outdoors, crafts, reading, writing, singing and watching clouds. Read more
