Covering the Web: June 24/16

Covering The Web

Shining a spotlight on the head covering discussion happening worldwide.

    • Why the “Small” Matter of Headcovering is NOT a Small Matter (Truth at Home)
      “…headcovering isn’t just about a piece of cloth. It isn’t just about appearances. What it’s really about is how we interpret the word of God: Do we interpret the Bible at face value, or do we interpret it based on assumptions?”
    • 31 How To Make Your Hair Grow Faster Tips (OLWomen)
      “Long, healthy and gorgeous looking locks are the most desirable…[the following] are some of the easiest techniques to make your hair grow faster and long utterly beautiful.” Submitted to us by Velma Gray. No idea if any of these work but thought it would be of interest to our readers because of 1 Cor 11:15
    • Christian Woman Wearing a Hijab- What Was It Like? (Healthy Life = Happy Wife)
       “I experimented with this topic and I decided to wear a Hijab everyday for two weeks. My results were very unexpected…On a spiritual level, I felt so close to God….It made me not want to take it off.”
    • Our Head Covering Applications (Another Radical Reformation)
      “The head covering is a good example of a Biblical command that Anabaptists have added applications to. I have my own preferences for my wife and daughters in regards to our application of this command…And if I insist that everyone must do exactly as I do or I can not consider them to be a true brother/sister in Christ, something is wrong.”
    • When Going Out Without a Hat Was Grounds for Scandal (Atlas Obscura)
      “I think part of it had to do with women not wanting to be told what to do, darnit—not being told whether you have to be respectable, have to do this, do that,” says Conti. “It’s like the statement with burning bras: get rid of a hat, you’re free! Like being on the front bow of the Titanic and the wind blowing in your hair—it was a freedom.”

Yes, I do remember as a small child that a lady always wore a hat out in public. And usually fancy gloves too. We always wore hats to church until I was about 10. Or sometimes a scarf or some teens talked their mothers into just a headband. (at least have “something” on your head). The Catholic girls wore veils. Then as women’s like infiltrated it just sort of faded away.
