Covering the Web: Nov 14/14

Covering The Web

Shining a spotlight on the head covering discussion happening worldwide.

  • My Thoughts on Head Coverings (Modest Modern Maidens)
    “… I don’t know about you, but I’ve just been bombarded with the issue of head coverings for the past 6 months at least—and I ignored it for 5 months. Maybe it’s the groups I worship with or the type of surfing I do on the web, but all I know is that I just couldn’t seem to get away from it.”
  • Why do women from different cultures and religions cover their hair? (Modest Fashion Blog)
    “Women from many different cultures and religions practice the ancient ritual of covering their hair. Why do they do so, and how do they do so? The reason why Christian women cover their hair is…”
  • Head Covering (YouTube)
    Carlie (who shared her testimony with us here) did a series on head covering on her YouTube page. You can watch part 1part 2, part 3, part 4, and part 5 now.
  • Woman to Woman (Premier Christian Radio)
    Heather Tomlinson (whose article we posted here) talks on the radio about her experience with headcovering. Her section starts at 37:51 and runs until 45:27.

I enjoyed the first article by Modest Maidens very much. I think many women of my generation (50’s) followed women’s lib, cut their hair short, wore pants all the time, stopped wearing hats to church, left the home to follow careers, curtailed the numbers of children and moved far away from God’s design for women. A younger generation is returning to many practices that are the opposite of these, that Christian women practiced for generations. And I believe a return to head covering is one of the important components.

I’m pretty sure short hair cuts are amazing, that’s why a majority of elderly women in the half dozen churches I’ve been to had short, permed, hair … they don’t usually wear hats except for fashion and there’s no spiritual meaning to them at all.

Actually many of do attach a spiritual meaning to our hats as our head coverings .

Jamie Carter

But not all do. Nobody in the half dozen churches I’ve been to ever head covered, not even the elderly women who as young children would have grown up in head covering churches. I’m pretty sure they don’t miss it and certainly don’t want to return to it.
