Covering the Web: Edition #2

Covering The Web

“Covering the Web” is where we shine the spotlight on content about head covering or complementarianism that we did not produce ourselves. Each edition includes articles, videos, photos, as well as e-book deals relevant to our movement’s mission. Links are not endorsements.

  • MUST READ: 5 Myths about Complementarianism (Crossway)
    “In what follows, we’ll highlight three myths imposed onto complementarianism from the outside (i.e. by egalitarians), plus two myths sometimes perpetuated by those on the inside (i.e. complementarians themselves who mistakenly push the boundaries of God’s design, perhaps to accommodate the culture).”
  • Play The Man (Desiring God)
    “Therefore, Christians, of all people, need to be clear that brutality, passivity, complacency, and effeminacy miss the mark of manhood. Jesus Christ did not domineer, live disinterestedly, or act like a woman — and he is the model of God-honoring masculinity. But the inclusion of effeminacy in that list may prick some sensibilities today.”
  • My Winter Style (Up North Mama)
    During December 2018 I participated in the Dressember challenge. The event raises awareness for human trafficking and the sex slavery trade. To participate you are required to wear a dress for the entire month of December. Not a problem! I love dresses and had already transitioned to wearing mostly dresses (I occasionally wear a long tunic with thick leggings). Here are some of my looks from December.

The following are a list of limited time e-book deals which are on the topic of biblical manhood and womanhood. If you don’t have a Kindle device, you can install their free reading app on your computer, phone, or tablet. Prices may vary per region.

Re-post • @deanlobs1 – I favor head covering for Christian women. Just do. It is not an easy sell in our culture.

  • MUST READ: Head Coverings, Part 2: The Issues At Hand (The Domestic Theologian)
    “The only sect of the Christian church that has abandoned the practice to a widespread degree has been the Western church beginning in the late 18- and 1900s. Not coincidentally, this same era and culture also saw the birth and cultivation of feminist philosophy, which rejects the concept of male headship within the church and home.”
  • 15 Questions To Test if you are a Proverbs 31 Woman (Radical Christian Woman)
    “Oh, Proverbs 31 Woman, you set an impossible (yet beautiful) standard….the truth is most women will struggle to answer positively for all these questions, so don’t freak out if you fall short. We just need to recognize areas that we are slacking off in and work harder in those areas.”
  • A Journey to Cover (They Were Strangers)
    “Excuse me, Ma’am.” “Yes?” I said, a little surprised by the short-haired, long-bearded man with tattoos covering his forearms….“I don’t mean to startle you, but I just wanted to tell you how nice it is to see you covering your head and dressing modestly and teaching your girls to do the same.”

Hi I’m Miranda. I thought I’d introduce myself to my new followers! I know that when I follow a new account I love to know more about them and their life. If you know me in real life, you can skip this one lol 😄. A list of fairly random things about me: -I had my first homebirth almost 20 years ago, and 5 after that. -My husband and I met in grade 10, but didn’t date until after highschool. -I grew up going to church, but stopped when my parents divorced when I was 17. -I got saved February 2005, and consider myself a Bible believing non-denominational Christian. -I started covering full time 7 months ago for spiritual reasons (that’s a story for another time) -My mum taught me to sew when I was 14. -I went to school for Fashion Design. It’s super fun to be able to draft my own clothes! -We’ve homeschooled for 15 years. -I have Celiac Disease, but believe I will be healed from it:) -I’m a 2 on the Enneagram and ISFJ on the Myers-Briggs personality test. -I usually take on/start too many things, and then disappear when I feel overwhelmed #introvertissues. -I have a heart for lonely people, moms with little ones, overwhelmed homeschoolers etc. -reading Nourishing Traditions 12 years ago was a game changer for me! -I love British TV, BBC miniseries, thrift stores, floral fabric and china, and basically all other granny things. -I also love to lift weights and use kettlebells. I used to think that meant I had to be #fitspo but now I realize it’s just part of who I am and what I like, and I’ve put it in its place:) 🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼 Whew…that’s it. More than you ever wanted to know about me. Introduce yourself in the comments. I love to know more about who is following me! ❤

Why Christian Women Should Practice Headcovering (The Happy Homemaker)

Covering The Web

Covering the Web is where we shine the spotlight on good content about head covering or complementarianism that we did not produce ourselves. This week we’d like to introduce you to two videos by Jenna MacLeod which was posted at The Happy Homemaker Youtube channel.
A brief overview on why I believe the ancient Christian tradition of headcovering found in 1 Corinthians 11 needs to be revived.

Head Coverings, Part 1: My Personal Journey (The Domestic Theologian)

Covering The Web

Covering the Web is where we shine the spotlight on good content about head covering or complementarianism that we did not produce ourselves. This week we’d like to introduce you to an article by Jessica A. Hageman which was posted at The Domestic Theologian.

Before beginning my foray into formal theological study a few years ago, I had never heard a single person in the church openly indicate (or even imply) that the passage on female head covering in 1 Corinthians 11:2-16 is to be applied in the Christian church today. I’ve been going to church since I was in diapers, but it wasn’t until 2016 that I met some sisters in Christ who revealed that they practice head covering. The more I talked with these women and the more I opened up in questioning their interpretation, the more my eyes were opened to women in my close personal circles – in my own church congregation, even – who also apply the passage in this way.

I was stunned at first. I definitely stuck my foot in my mouth on many occasions with phrases like, “Surely you know this passage is about Corinthian culture. You need to repent of your legalism.” This is what I had always been told and I never thought to question it. And to be honest, I didn’t want to question it. I didn’t want to stick out like a sore thumb in a culture that demands I have both the looks and the feminism of Emma Watson. I didn’t want to look like an Amish grandmother in comparison.

The more I had these hard conversations with my patient friends, however, the more I felt convicted about my rationale (or lack thereof) for objecting to this passage’s modern application. For several months in 2017, I began covering during corporate worship (the formal gathering of the local church) but hadn’t come to any solid conclusions at this time except that I didn’t trust my motives for objecting. I decided I would rather be safe than sorry, so to speak, until I came to a more solid conclusion; I had at least decided that while it definitely isn’t disobedient to cover, it might be disobedient not to. It wasn’t too much trouble to tie on a bandana once a week until I actually studied the subject in depth.

After several months I wavered again. I had experienced some pushback from some close believing friends, and being a people-pleaser, it wrecked me to experience this conflict over a conviction I already wasn’t confident about. I started reading through the passage critically again. The arguments of both sides seemed equally heavy. Life became exceptionally busy when Devynn and I started dating and got engaged, and I completely forgot about it for almost a year.

Then one random day in June, I was hit with a wall of conviction – not about my failure to cover, per se, but about my apathy. I didn’t care whether or not I was being disobedient, and I didn’t care to seek answers in Scripture. So I sat down, wrote a list of all my questions and objections, pulled out every commentary and Bible translation I could find in our house, and sprawled out on the floor with them. And here’s the thing about this passage, its language, and the controversy surrounding it: I spent nearly four hours like this, but only one or two out of my nine or ten questions had been answered in any definitive way.
