1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. 2 Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you. 3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. 4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head. 5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. 6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. 7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. 8 For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man. 9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man. 10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels. 11 Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord. 12 For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God. 13 Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered? 14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? 15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering. 16 But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God. 17 Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse. 18 For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it. 19 For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you. 20 When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to eat the Lord's supper. 21 For in eating every one taketh before other his own supper: and one is hungry, and another is drunken. 22 What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or despise ye the church of God, and shame them that have not? What shall I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I praise you not. 23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: 24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. 25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. 26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come. 27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. 30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world. 33 Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another. 34 And if any man hunger, let him eat at home; that ye come not together unto condemnation. And the rest will I set in order when I come.

1 Deena E = "The word head here refers to authority. We live in an age where many have little to no regard for authority. We especially see this in mainstream media's portrayals of marriage. God's design for the husband's authority is not so much about ruling over his wife, as it is to protect, teach, guide and provide. Marriage in this sense, is suppose to mirror the church's relationship with Jesus."
2 Sarah R = "Genesis 2:18, 21-2418 The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” ...So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. 22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.23 The man said,“This is now bone of my bones    and flesh of my flesh;she shall be called ‘woman,’    for she was taken out of man.”24 That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.""
3 Sarah R = "The accounts of the last supper, which we remember in communion, are found in Matthew 26:26-29, Mark 14:17-25, Luke 22:7-22, and John 13:21-30. It was important enough of an event to include in all four gospels."
4 Sarah R = "Paul states that the Lord's supper should not be taken casually but with remembrance of the Lord's sacrifice for us. Before partaking in communion, we should take a moment to think about what it means and why we are taking it. To not do so is, Paul says, it to disrespect the Lord and His sacrifice."
5 Cary W = "We must ever be diligent in awareness of what we are doing, why we are doing it, and whether it be in tune with the Spirit, or whether the carelessness of the flesh be given a foothold.  Search us oh Lord, try our ways, make the meditations of our hearts and the words of our mouths be pleasing to Thee."
6 Sarah R = "Verses about the Lord's discipline:Deuteronomy 8:5 "Know then in your heart that as a man disciplines his son, so the LORD your God disciplines you."Proverbs 3:12 "because the LORD disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in."Hebrews 12:6 "For the LORD disciplines those he loves, and he punishes each one he accepts as his child."Revelations 3:19 "Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. ""
7 Sarah R = ""He closes all with a caution against the irregularities of which they were guilty, charging them to avoid all indecency at the Lord’s table. They were to eat for hunger and pleasure only at home, and not to change the holy supper to a common feast; and much less eat up the provisions before those who could bring none did partake of them, lest they should come together for condemnation... Holy things are to be used in a holy manner, or else they are profaned. What else was amiss in this matter, he tells them, he would rectify when he came to them."- Matthew Henry Commentary for 1 Corinthians 11"
