    I Corinthians 11

    Hi Bob:
    The Amish & other Anabaptists still practice the teaching of 1 Corinthians 11 so yes, it is a Biblical reason. In fact, in the Amish/Mennonite Behalt Information Center, there is a display of Coverings, with the Chapter of 1 Corinthians 11 posted to explain both the covering and the scriptures regarding long hair.

      Starching Prayer Covering

      Hi Deborah,
      IF you do not get a reply here to your dilemma with your covering, you might want to ask (if you are on facebook) on the Amish Q & A facebook group. It’s a closed group but all you have to do is request to be a member. There are a lot of former Amish that post in there so they will see your question and probably have an answer.
