Preaching Today: HEAD COVERINGS AND WOMEN IN WORSHIP
I'm currently listening to, but haven't finished yet, listening to the preacher at the site above speaking on the passages in 1 Corinthians discussing head coverings and women in worship. The preacher is handling this as a touchy, difficult passage, so it takes him quite a while to get to the subject, because he's trying to deal with the sensitivities of his audience and soften things with a conversational (almost rambling) tone. But he makes some good points in there about obedience and authority. [The important subject is that of the role of women, as presented in the Bible, and it is not a well-received or understood topic in our part of the world; but it is necessary to understanding the place of "headcovering".] A three part lesson so far, each section about an hour long.
Please read the first comment below for a response from the preacher, Trevor Hammack, regarding his purpose, and links to his Bible talks at sermonaudio.com. I can certainly appreciate the idea that many people interpret this (and other) scripture in a variety of ways, which is why I did like his comment in the first talk that we must agree to obey God, even if we don't like what we hear. Thanks to this preacher, and others who have posted blogs and audio or video online, regarding this subject - to share thoughts and learning, and to help others understand more of why one book written in black and white can appear in a rainbow of colors, depending on the shade of glasses a person wears when they approach its teaching.
