What is worship all about? If we listen to many churches and churchgoers, we might be led to think it is about “YOU”. Were you inspired? Were
you entertained? Did you have a good experience? Did you feel comfortable? With our culture of individualism, it is easy to forget that 1) God is
the audience of worship (not “you”) and 2) we worship together in community with others. This brings us to the issue of head coverings in 1 Corinthians 11. In a topic like this, we must separate timeless biblical principle from cultural artifact. While head coverings are not a universal and
timeless requirement, the practice of humility in worship (before God and
others) continues through eternity. This passage helps us set proper expectations in worship, properly prepare for it, and to actually worship in a
way that glorifies God and assists our neighbor.
