"Let Her Be Covered"
The Christadelphian 1900, page 66
No. 428, February 1st, 1900, Vol. XXXVII



A.J.H. Paul's direction was that women should be covered in the assemblies. The size of the assembly or the location of it does not alter the principle. There should be no contention over the matter. Paul cut it short authoritatively in his day: "If any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God." Doubtless in very small meetings in private houses it seems strange for a sister to cover her head in her own house; but we remember that they broke bread from house to house in apostolic times, and we cannot suppose that the example of tbe Corinthian women would be tolerated because of the smallness of an assembly. Discerning sisters will gladly submit to the apostolic ruling.
