To Cover Or Not To Cover

September 13, 2011 Leave a comment

Being a part-time head coverer, I’m wondering if I should only cover during prayer and church time? Are all the females supposed to cover their head, or just the married ones, or when they start puberty? It’s been all extremely confusing to me, so the other night of September 11, I wore my hair back in a simple ponytail. ( I didn’t want anyone mistaking me for a Muslim at that particular time. )

I don’t believe the Jewish people make their unmarried or younger girls cover because there’s no reason to hide their hair. From what I’ve read, as long as they don’t try and draw attention to their hair they don’t have to be covered, but that’s how I interpreted it.

Which raises a big decision for me: Cover in public or just in church? What would you do?

When Did Immodesty Become Acceptable?

August 18, 2011 1 comment

I know I keep referring back to the old days, but what teens ( adults alike ) wear to church today I believe would have been horrifyingly for women in church to wear 100 years ago. I’m not trying to be judgmental, but the style of clothing today appalls me. When did dresses above the knee and straps ( or no straps ) become acceptable church attire? ( I’m not saying they’re necessarily inappropriate, and I’m not saying any of you are ” wrong ” to wear that style of dress. )

When did slits in our skirts/dresses that come really high up acceptable?

When did immodesty become acceptable in the church, or anywhere for that matter?

I wish our pastors would talk more on the subject of ” Modesty In The Church “.
