Reverence in Worship; The Lord's Supper

Be imitators of me, even as I also am of Christ. +
Now I praise you, brothers, that you remember me in all things, and hold firm the traditions, even as I delivered them to you. +
But I would have you know that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. +
Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonors his head. +
But every woman praying or prophesying with her head uncovered dishonors her head. For it is one and the same thing as if she were shaved. +
For if a woman is not covered, let her hair also be cut off. But if it is shameful for a woman to have her hair cut off or be shaved, let her be covered. +
For a man indeed ought not to have his head covered, because he is the image and glory of God, but the woman is the glory of the man. +
For man is not from woman, but woman from man; +
for man wasn't created for the woman, but woman for the man. +
For this cause the woman ought to have authority over her own head, because of the angels. +
Nevertheless, neither is the woman independent of the man, nor the man independent of the woman, in the Lord. +
For as woman came from man, so a man also comes through a woman; but all things are from God. +
Judge for yourselves. Is it appropriate that a woman pray to God unveiled? +
Doesn't even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him? +
But if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her, for her hair is given to her for a covering. +
But if any man seems to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither do God's assemblies. +
But in giving you this command, I don't praise you, that you come together not for the better but for the worse. +
For first of all, when you come together in the assembly, I hear that divisions exist among you, and I partly believe it. +
For there also must be factions among you, that those who are approved may be revealed among you. +
When therefore you assemble yourselves together, it is not the Lord's supper that you eat. +
For in your eating each one takes his own supper first. One is hungry, and another is drunken. +
What, don't you have houses to eat and to drink in? Or do you despise God's assembly, and put them to shame who don't have? What shall I tell you? Shall I praise you? In this I don't praise you. +
For I received from the Lord that which also I delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night in which he was betrayed took bread. +
When he had given thanks, he broke it, and said,"Take, eat. This is my body, which is broken for you. Do this in memory of me." +
In the same way he also took the cup, after supper, saying,"This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink, in memory of me." +
For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes. +
Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks the Lord's cup in a way unworthy of the Lord will be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord. +
But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread, and drink of the cup. +
For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy way eats and drinks judgment to himself, if he doesn't discern the Lord's body. +
For this cause many among you are weak and sickly, and not a few sleep. +
For if we discerned ourselves, we wouldn't be judged. +
But when we are judged, we are punished by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world. +
Therefore, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait for one another. +
But if anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, lest your coming together be for judgment. The rest I will set in order whenever I come. +
