How to Talk about Head Covering on Your Church Web Site

How to Talk about Head Covering on Your Church Web Site

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

Premier Christianity Magazine: My Headcovering Experiment

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.

Premier Christianity Magazine: November 2014

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.

Website Changes & Updates
  1. We updated Which Bible Commentaries Teach Head Covering? Three commentaries were added to the bottom of the page.
  2. All of our videos (which previously were exclusive to Youtube) have been uploaded to Godtube. We wanted to have a presence on that site for when Christians are searching for videos about head covering.
  3. We recently began using a new plugin for our footnotes. Previously you just saw an asterisk like this: *. When you saw that symbol that would be your indicator to mouseover to see the reference. It wasn’t very visible and many people may have thought we had no references because of it. Now they’re numbered, display superscript, are listed at the bottom of the page, and can still be viewed when mousing over. We manually edited all articles on the site to reflect this new format.
  4. We added a page to the “About” section called “Purpose, Beliefs and Core Values.” We encourage everyone to check it out so you can hear in our own words, why we exist and what’s really important to us.
