Shining a spotlight on the head covering discussion happening worldwide.

  • Campaign encourages head coverings for women (St. Joseph News-Press)
    “Long gone are the days of ladies wearing hats to church. Or are they? If an online campaign has its way, church-going women will soon return to wearing head coverings during worship.”
  • Web Users Want to Know: ‘Why Do Christian Women Cheat, Wear Skirts, Cover Their Heads?’ (The Christian Post: Buzzvine)
    “Popular search engines Google, Yahoo and Bing use what’s called predictive search, and when queried “why do Christian women…” the search engines reveal that online users appear to be most curious about Christian women’s relationship and clothing habits.”
  • The Head Covering: Ordinance or Custom: Part 2 (Bible League Trust)
    Published in The Bible League Quarterly magazine issues #454 (Jul-Sep’13). “…unlike social conventions the ordinances of Christ are not subject to variation or change. They are to be kept, held fast to, taught and passed on, not contended with or argued away. Our calling before God is to obey, to put those ordinances into practice, including the covering and uncovering of the head, and to teach them to our children.”
  • Take the hats off when you pray, boys. (Ryan Douglas Scott)
    “This tradition of men removing their hats goes back further than John Wayne and Roy Rogers. It goes all the way back to Corinthians, in fact. If a man prays having his head covered, he is disrespecting and bringing dishonor to his head, which is Jesus. Now that’s a pretty serious claim.”

  • The Head Covering: Ordinance or Custom: Part 1 (Bible League Trust)
    “Without looking at all the arguments, I believe our understanding of the passage can be greatly helped by focusing on two crucial words, the first appearing at the beginning in verse 2, and the second at the end in verse 16. They are the words ordinances and custom.”
  • Headcoverings (Infertility Mom)
    Jennifer Saake, author of “Hannah’s Hope” (NavPress, 2005) writes on her head covering journey. “That I feel convicted that God is asking me to cover my head in no way makes me any “more spiritual” than the next woman. It simply means that in this one area, I would be in outright rebellion to what God has convicted me if I did not obey what I believe He has called me to.”
  • Why Your Hair Is Not Your “Head Covering” (YouTube / Know Jesus First)
    A video showing why “hair” cannot be the head covering in 1 Corinthians 11 (besides verse 15). If you believe “long hair” rather than just “hair” is the covering we wrote about that here.
  • Head Coverings and Skirts (The Proper ‘Biblical!’ Lady)
    “Because the Bible does not describe a head covering, there is no right or wrong one… I have chosen to wear white bandanas or other types of coverings that when you see them, you know right away what it is.”

  • Why I wear a hat to church (Stray Thoughts)
    “Sometimes one of the questions is “What is one thing people might not know about you?” One good answer to that question is that I wear a hat, or headcovering, to church, but I have never mentioned it on my blog because I don’t want to be thought weird or misjudged because of it.”
  • Desires of The Flesh // in Nautical Inspired Cardigan (Fresh Modesty)
    A site that gives practical wardrobe encouragement for women. Olivia, the site’s founder, wears a head covering during church. Many of her posts (like this one) show what she wears. Check it out for some ideas. “Headcovering: Simple lace wrapped around my head 3 times.”
  • Ethics: Pastor Requires Women Wear Head Coverings! (Here I Blog)
    We linked to this on social media recently, but not on the site. “As far fetched as it sounds, a Texas pastor banned weaves in his congregation. No doubt we church folks certainly do some weird things sometimes. Banning weaves in church is pretty far-fetched, but what about pastor requiring women to wear head coverings?”
  • Christian Head Coverings – Q&A (YouTube / Know Jesus First)
    “In this video I answer two questions about Christian Head Coverings.”

  • 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.”
