Worshipping at PBF this past weekend with the Cunningham’s was not only a delight but it was a new experience for me. Having first met Pastor Thomas Ray Floyd about a year ago I soon learned that he had sermons posted online. He had one sermon about the woman’s head covering in worship. Being an ex-Southern Baptist/ex-Cambelite/ex-Charismatic I immediately assumed that I would disagree with the contents of this sermon even though I had to admit to myself that I’ve always been confused by the passages that mention the head covering. I had especially been confused by some of the teaching I’d heard trying to explain and/or dismiss it. To sum it up, Pastor Floyd pretty much laid it out as it is written. I now believe that the only way to take the passages is literally. I am even a little embarrassed that I ever tried to see it any other way. If you have never worshiped in that type of environment before I would recommend it to anyone who might have the least bit of interest in it. For many of you I am preaching to the choir as you are already RP. I’m really speaking to anyone that is curious about it and has never experienced it before. The service wasn’t EP but as far as everything else went it was pretty straight up RP. One example, there were no instruments. As for the women’s head coverings it was precious! I’ve never dreamed how it might change the atmosphere! I wasn’t sitting supreme as a male chauvinist feeling that I was above these sweet ladies and girls. It had quite the opposite effect on me. There was a “spirit” of humility in the place. Rather than feeling superior because I am a man (an idea which I don’t accept anyway) I was taken back by the humble spirit and it caused me to want to humble myself. (Don’t worry. I didn’t put a covering on my head LOL) The ladies’ coverings reminded me that Jesus has called me also to humility. I realize that I’m dancing around on a hot topic on the PB but my intention isn’t to stir up an already existing controversy. (The PCA I am a member of is far removed from this type of worship) I only wanted to share my experience.
