Covering the Web: Oct 4/13

Covering The Web

Shining a spotlight on the head covering discussion happening worldwide.

  • Uncovering the Head Covering Debate (Christianity Today)
    Not advocating head covering, but an important article because of where it was posted. If you’re visiting us from CT, click here: “If Paul, in inspired Scripture, asks the wives of the church to cover their heads to show that their submission to their husbands as a part of decorum for corporate worship, why don’t we modern complementarians do so? And why, for example, is this small but well-advertised headcovering movement trying to bring it back?”
  • A Long-Lost Secret of God to Strengthen Our Prayer Lives and Marriages (Peacefulwife’s Blog)
    “THIS DOESN’T APPLY ANYMORE, RIGHT? CAN’T I JUST MOVE ON TO THE STUFF ABOUT THE LORD’S SUPPER LATER IN THE CHAPTER? I argued with God. I tried to reason with Him. “I’m doing the long hair thing – that is my womanly glory. Isn’t that enough?” I looked up all the different ways people interpret this passage. I dug deeper – or maybe more accurately, I tried to find a way around what God was asking me to do.”
    NOTE: This post was updated with a new title and post in March 2017. The original is no longer available.
  • Head coverings a key symbol of Amish culture (Ohio’s Amish Country)
    “With many of their own customs and traditions, a distinct segment of this culture is the women’s head coverings. But if visitors were to ask why Amish women wear coverings, what kind of an answer would they receive?”
  • Christian Lady’s Head Covering (Mama Economics)
    “Many of you who have followed our family’s website from the beginning probably noticed that many of our pictures have been changed recently…Today I am going to detail the journey I have traveled that led to the conclusion of wearing a Christian lady’s head covering.”

Not exactly on topic, but could you provide some ideas, or maybe links to ideas for head coverings and hair styles that mesh well with coverings. I do wear them all the time and after a while the same 2 or 3 things gets old. Thanks!

Hi Beth, I don’t see that anyone responded to your question, so here are a couple of suggestions. Try googling modest head covering, or tichels. You should get a lot of sites, and many of them have suggestions for various ways to arrange head scarves, so you won’t get bored. Remember that most women who practice head covering today are Jewish or Muslim, so a lot of sites will reflect that.
