The Headcovering – It’s Not Just An Assembly Thing [updated]


 

 

If you were to visit my church on a Sunday morning one of the first things you would probably notice is that the sisters have their heads covered, and the brothers have their heads uncovered. If you are not accustomed to this practice you would probably wonder why.

One might think it is simply based on longstanding tradition and not on God’s Word. The practice, however, is based on 1 Corinthians 11:2-16 and other related passages that deal with the subject of headship.

I find it interesting that as many assemblies move away from the symbolic practice of headship there is a growing rediscovery of this truth and practice in other congregations.

By way of example I have posted the above video. The accompanying sermon notes can be found here.

But, if one approaches this chapter with an objective eye, mind and heart, the truths are pretty self-evident.

It really is as easy as 1-2-3. One glory should be evident, two coverings are needed, and three heads are mentioned. Along with the three heads mentioned, there are three glories associated with each head.
