Is it essential that hats be worn by sisters today when social custom has changed so much? If they should be warn, when? At the Memorial Service only? Or whenever a sister prays, even when giving thanks for a meal? Such questions have arisen in the minds of many thoughtful sisters. Perhaps, too, some of the brethren have found difficulty in providing perfectly consistent answers.
The problem is not simply to find "pat" answers to satisfy any enquirer, but rather to follow faithfully the instruction of the Almighty. this must be done without adding doubtful burdens to be borne and without seeking to minimize or disregard requirements which He, Himself has deemed necessary.
