Should women wear head coverings today? What was the purpose that they had in the 1st Century, and are there any modern equivalents? Many cultural practices act as sign posts or even guardians to more important principles. The practices themselves are not sacred and can change, but we must be thoughtful, wise, and careful about how, when, and if we choose to push back on cultural constructs. Indeed, it is wise and even good to do so at times (slavery, women's right to vote, etc.), but other times it takes more care and consideration for what the collateral affect might be.


Life is messy. Church life is messy. Every church has problems, because every church is made up of people. But God has called His people to come together to live life alongside each other and to encourage and carry each other, even amid difficult and challenging circumstances. The Apostle Paul planted a church in Corinth, Greece, and it very quickly became a church that dealt with many problems. They lacked maturity and wisdom, despite being a very gifted church. 1 Corinthians is a fatherly challenge and guide to them to help them get back on track and grow in the wisdom they need.
