Head covering and Churches

Just as there are a wide variety of reasons for a modern western woman to choose headcovering as an act of devotion to Jesus, there are a multitude of church situations in which headcovering women find themselves. For my instance, I attend a church where no other women cover or make an attempt at modest dress. (A Vineyard church) They have quietly accepted my choice, though few have asked why. The more immodest ladies don’t talk to me much. Its a small church, so whatever small thing happens to change in your appearance, it is hard to hide!

What have your experiences been? Has your church been welcoming of your decision to cover? Do they encourage it? Or are they silently accepting? Have you had any negative comments, from men or women?

Let me know in the comments!

    We have never attended a dresses-only (not just for church time, but home also) headship veiling church. We came to our convictions in this about 8 years ago, and while the comments at church were mixed, no one really questioned our heart in the matter. It has been a change moving from our state to another and having no one like-minded around us, but we know that The Lord hasn’t changed our hearts merely because of being ‘alone’ here in this conviction.
    We are always seeking out fellowship with others who are walking this path that is so new to our generation.

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you are licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what." No idea where that last quote came from, but I like it!
