Last night, during a solemn Maundy Thursday Service, at Christ Church Clinton, Reverend Cassandra washed my feet as Christ did for his Disciples. This act symbolizes humility and service. We are to humble ourselves, take people as they come, regardless of circumstance, friend or foe, sick or well, rich or poor, last and first and wash their feet for we are all of the same spirit.
By washing their feet, including those of the disciple who was to betray him, Christ wanted us to know that although we are imperfect, we should be hopeful. We are worth salvaging and that loving our neighbors as Christ loved us is the way to salvation.
During the ceremony, and after, I asked myself how many feet have I washed? Have I loved my neighbors enough?
