Head Covering: Principle or Custom?


In 1 Corinthians 11, we see Paul give instructions for praying and prophesying in the gathering of the church. These instructions include what’s on, or off, our heads. Many faithful teachers have disagreed on the continued use of head coverings. Is it a principle that transcends time and culture? Or is it a custom of that age, subject to change in application to fit the current culture? Betsy and Michelle struggle together through this depthy passage of scripture – taking stances for themselves and providing both cultural and transcendent principles behind it. Join us at the table, bring your Bible, and have more clarity on whether this passage presents a custom or principle!

We pray you think through this portion of scripture and come to a Spirit-led conviction that glorifies God.
