Happy Blogiversary to DanBoone.me

It’s my Blogiversary!

Can you believe I’ve been blogging here (and you’ve been reading) for two years? It’s hard for me to believe sometimes.

This blog debuted on November 26, 2013, with a simple “Welcome to My Blog” post.

Since then I’ve written on all sorts of topics: church life, theology, college students, culture, marriage, family, and human sexuality. I’ve shared excerpts from my books, a few videos, seasonal greetings, opinions, and book reviews.

Thank you, dear readers, for continuing to support my writing by reading it! I appreciate all of your comments here and on Facebook and Twitter. It means a lot to know that I connect with you in a meaningful way.

My team thought it would be interesting and fun to revisit some of my most popular posts from the last two years. We’ve chosen four posts that most resonated with readers. Each week in November, we’ll highlight one of these popular posts.

This week, we’re looking at the theme of church, worship, and women.

What Paul Says About Women in the Church

The issue in 1 Corinthians 11:2-16 (which speaks of women wearing veils and having long hair) is not male control of women but how a woman’s hair or uncovered head affected the understanding of Christianity in Corinth. Apparently, some of the women were bucking culture and letting their hair hang loose, just like the pagan priestesses who went into a prophetic frenzy at the local pagan temple. And they were also shaving their heads, reminiscent of the hairstyle of the city prostitutes. Whether pagan or prostitute, the hairstyles of these women sent a damaging signal to the people of Corinth about the nature of Christianity.”
