Head-Covering: Is It Still Relevant?

I have seen quite a bit of interest in this post. I want to reaffirm the people who have had questions, keep studying. I also want to reaffirm that this Christian tradition was NOT intended to make women any less beautiful. Grace and peace. –MWP

    Thanks much,

    • Thanks David. Let me take a look at it in the next day or so and I will get back to you.

    • Hi David, I am about a third of the way through your document. And I will be happy to supply some feedback when I finish. On first blush, you have done an excellent amount of research, and it shows! May I ask you a couple of questions? I am rather curious as to what Christian tradition or church you hail to. And second, what Seminary or Bible college did you do your studies? This gives me a chance to see “how” you did your thinking and why. Warmest regards, Mike
