  • Called to Cover our Heads? A Quick Breakdown of 1 Corinthians 11 (Ramblings of a Christian MOM!!)
    “I never paid that much attention to 1 Corinthians 11 before. Like many people, I more or less skimmed through it, deeming the passage as cultural to the times and irrelevant to me…Lately, however, the topic has come up several times in Christian Mommy Facebook groups that I’m in and I felt convicted to study deeper into it. Here is what I discovered…”
  • Principle 31 – Godly Disciplines for Assemblies (YouTube)
    An official reading from the “Gospel Fellowships” audiobook. This section deals with head covering as well as other spiritual disciplines. 3 minutes long.
  • The Headcovering as a Universal Practice (A Ruby in the Rough)
    “The headcovering requirement is based on the order of creation. It has been argued that this means that the principle of male headship is permanent, but the particular application of it (i.e. headcovering) was cultural. There is no evidence in the passage for this.”
  • Should Women Wear Head Coverings….? (YouTube)
    A 14 minute video from Corinn Linkowski (teenage girl).

  • The Accidental Complementarian (Her.Meneutics / Christianity Today)
    “With this approach, many years into marriage, I—a headstrong, egalitarian woman—embraced a complementarian reading of 1 Corinthians 11:3: “But I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.” I sought the truth—and made an interpretive decision.”
  • Congratulations to our Pinterest Winner! (Joni and Friends)
    “Vic guessed correctly on the Pinterest photo – the picture was snapped in 1991 when I was in Moscow, Russia to help prepare for Billy Graham’s Crusade…But why the babushka? The Iron Curtain had only recently come down and many Christians still held fast to old traditions (although, wearing a head covering in church is a very biblical idea :-).”
  • How I Packed For A Weekend in Florida (Fresh Modesty)
    “Bright and early Sunday morning, we attended church at St. Andrew’s Chapel in Sanford, Florida. Dr. RC Sproul was preaching and it was incredible to hear him in such a pretty building. I borrowed my shoes and headcovering from the day before and threw on this…”
  • K.P. Yohannan on Head Covering. (Domestic Felicity)
    “I first heard of K.P Yohannon when my aunt gave me the book Revolution In World Missions. Not my usual kind of book, but it was from such a different (indigenous) perspective than I usually get & he gives his testimony in such an engaging style I devoured it. So I was pleased to stumble over his new little Head Coverings book.”

  • This Is Me #10 (The Candle Underneath the Looking Glass)
    “At what point do Christians stop obeying, word for word, what the Bible says? One passage most Christians don’t follow is , 1 Cor 11:2-16, regarding head coverings for women in church. There are some churches (power to them) that do follow this tradition but most do not.”
  • Head Coverings – Two Spiritual Statements (Christian Fellowship Church – India)
    “We recognize that our understanding of head-covering is not popular in most Western cultures. Most people (and the young especially) want their Christianity to be “cool” and relevant. We are not primarily interested in this. We definitely don’t go out of our way to stand out or be different for difference sake; we simply value submission to God’s Word. And we are persuaded that the practice of head covering is prescribed in the Bible…”
  • Head Coverings and Christianity (Reformed Christian Theology)
    “People have a very bad tendency of ignoring obvious teachings in Scripture, because they don’t mix well with the social norms of the day. The issue of head coverings is one of these issues. The first time I ever read 1 Corinthians 11 I understood what it meant, because it was so simple. After getting married, my wife started wearing a hat to church, because it suffices as a head covering.”
  • Head Coverings for Sisters, Should they? (Wheatland Bible Chapel)
    “It is implied that this was a Corinthian problem and applied only to that church. However, all the teaching of this epistle is clearly directed in its introduction. It was written to the Corinthian saints “with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.” Paul is not afraid to address cultural problems in Corinth. But in this chapter there is no mention of culture.”

  • Courage to cover (Becoming A Titus 2 Wife)
    “Once again, I will be the only one that I know of in our church of over 900 that covers there…If I can’t overcome my fear to cover in public worship when God asks me to, then how can He trust me to obey Him in bigger things?
  • Headcovering in Public Worship (Free Presbyterian Church)
    “In the Free Presbyterian Church we believe we should obey God rather than men–or women! That is why we follow the only custom on this matter that God ever established in His church–that men should not engage in public worship with their heads covered, and women should not do so without their heads being covered. To us this is no legal bondage but a joyful gospel testimony to the sole glory of Christ in His church.”
  • Should Christian women wear a headcovering at church? (The Free Press)
    “It would seem strange that Paul goes to these lengths to command the women to wear the headcovering if the external practice is of no importance whatsoever.”
  • Why Christian Women Cover Their Hair. (BibleStudy.net)
    “We have therefore seen a nearly universal practice, women covering their hair in churches, completely effaced over the course of, say, the past 50 years or so. In fact, the practice has gone so unpracticed, that when my own wife wore a covering over her hair in the church we attended almost 30 years ago, she was the ONLY woman in the church so doing.”

  • Head Covering in Modern Times. Is This A Necessary Practice? (Children Are A Blessing)
    “Months ago I began subscribing to a site called The Head Covering Movement. (Yes, my husband has teased me for this, ha!) Anyhow, while reading their articles and blog posts I began to piece a few clues together that has made this passage become clear to me.”
  • Sunday Brunch – Should Women Cover Their Heads? (Cecelia’s Christian Fiction Blog)
    Fiction author Cecelia Dowdy brings up the topic and turns it over to you for your thoughts: “Please leave a comment about this thought-provoking subject!”
  • Head-Covering: Is It Still Relevant? (Regeneration, Repentance and Reformation)
    “While the sign upon her head, and it must always be that upon the head if any, may change according to the day, the necessity of it remains. The church has held to this position for nearly two millennia until the sexual revolution and women’s liberation movement; this is an historical fact that cannot be easily dismissed by revisionism.”
  • So…head covering…yes or no? (Blessed Hope Farm)
    “Now, after my long rant in that previous post some of you are still wondering: What did she decide about the head covering and what does it all mean?! I know you are waiting with bated breath so I’ll tell you already.”
