A few emails I’ve received lately prompted this post.
Why cover your head?
I can’t speak to why others choose to cover their heads. For some, it’s a religious mandate (Muslims, some Jews, Amish, some Mennonite, others?). For some, it’s less a religious mandate and more of a personal conviction.
I’m not really going to debate the Biblical aspect here. In my opinion, women covering their head is not mandated by the Bible, but neither is it forbidden. I believe it’s a practice that is smiled upon by God when done for the correct purpose.
I CAN speak to why I have chosen to cover during various phases of my life.
