Everyone has been great answering questions for me. I thought I'd give this one a try: I Cor. 11:3-16. The reasons Paul gives for women covering their hair: v. 5 Women dishonor their head when they pray uncovered v. 6 It is a disgrace to have hair uncovered , just as her head were shaved v. 10 - two reasons (1) appears would offend angels who were present at worship and (2) women should have a sign of authority over their head Three of the four reasons don't appear to have anything to do with customs at the time (arguably it is not disgraceful for a woman to have her head shaved any longer, although most women would feel ashamed). Why should I not be covering my head when I go to public worship?
