Feet washing

I have set you an example that 
you should do as I have done for you. 
John 13:15 NIV

Feet washing is "a physical sign of agreeing to follow Jesus' example," my Dad reminded us Sunday evening before we ladies filed back to a classroom and the waiting basin of warm water and the men gathered at the front of the sanctuary. Our church practices feet washing at our biannual communion service. Kneeling to wash and dry feet and then rising to greet one another with a holy kiss is a reminder that we should serve one another with the same humility and willingness that Christ served us.
