Do you know how many germs grow on the human foot? Feet are just nasty. Well, Maundy Thursday rolled around again, and I went to yet another Maundy Thursday foot washing.
Yes, I know its scriptural;
Yes, Jesus commanded it;
Yes, it's awesome theology,
Yes, I was even Sacristan during the service ferreting bowls of water back and forth;
Yes, short of eating hosts off the floor and self flagellation, I still think it is the nastiest ritual ever conceived. Couldn't we have just had a hand washing?
Thanks a lot, Jesus.
