By Don Ruhl

Whatever we do in life and in the church, should reflect the genders as God created us, for He had a reason for doing what He did,

For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man. For man is not from woman, but woman from man. Nor was man created for the woman, but woman for the man (1 Corinthians 11.7–9). 

God made the male first from the dust of the Earth, but God made the female second from the male. Therefore, the male reflects the glory of God, and the female the glory of the male, but both of us are for the glory of God.
