A Deep Theological Question

Ok, here's the deal.

I work out. Very strenuously.

In the afternoons.

Therefore, I do not shower until the evening.

It's winter, we're in a garage, I don't sweat that much.

What I'm trying to say is....I don't smell.

Anyway, I have to run errands, etc. in the morning while Kinley is awake and happy.

My hair looks horrible from the working out and then sleeping on wet hair.

I would like to wear a hat so as not to frighten young children I might see coming in and out of shops.

But can I wear one in the post office?

What about the library?

The church?

These are place I often go in varying degrees of dishevelment (if that's a word).

Is it inappropriate for me to where a hat inside those places?

What do you think?

I believe it is acceptable for a woman to cover her head in ANY place. Men must remove their hats, but women often wear decorative hats in church (in some churches.)

I will at this point refer to the Bible...1 Corinthians 11:5-7 (New International Version)

5And every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head—it is just as though her head were shaved. 6If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off; and if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut or shaved off, she should cover her head. 7A man ought not to cover his head,[a] since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man.

I'm all about the hat! It not only hides my bad hair, but unplucked brows too!

I'm not sure what Deena is saying here? Is she taking this passage and applying it to our time? Does she cover her head at all times? If not, then in my opinion, this scripture is of no relevance.

Wear your hat yes!! But not because of what this scripture is saying.
