What would you do Wednesday!
As far fetched as it sounds, a Texas pastor banned weaves in his congregation. No doubt we church folks certainly do some weird things sometimes. Banning weaves in church is pretty far-fetched, but what about pastor requiring women to wear head coverings?
One Sunday morning your pastor begins a new sermon series starting in 1 Corinthians 11. He explains that while preparing the series he came across a new movement – The Head Covering Movement. He began to read and dig deeply into the topic of head coverings.
He came to some new – even startling – convictions on head coverings. Startling because he had no intention of ending up where he did on head coverings.
The pastor’s convictions have resulted in new requirements for the women in the congregation. He now requires women to wear head coverings during church worship gatherings. He understands some women may not be comfortable right away. He wants to give them some time to mature in their understanding of head coverings.
He is not sure if he sees this as a potential future church discipline issue for those who won’t follow his biblical convictions on this issue. Any women employed by the church must immediately begin wearing head covering. He notes that some pastors require all staff not use alcohol or tobacco so he sees nothing out of bounds with implementing a biblical head covering rule for all female staff.
What would you do?
- Follow and encourage the pastor’s new convictions.
- Discuss with the pastor to help settle your own conscience.
- Try to reason with him about his stance of making them a requirement.
- Buy a bunch of head coverings with propellers on top and pass them out.
