November 1, 2020, John 13:1-15, 34-35 ISSL Reflections Post 3

You may want to return to the Scripture passage to read it again –

VII.
Some congregations reenact this scene every Maundy Thursday, Thursday of Holy Week, the day before Good Friday.

A friend of mine attentened a Baptist church that regarded food washing as an “ordinance” alongside baptism and the Lord’s supper that was to be practiced today. As I recall they had foot washing once a year (but perhaps my memory fails).

VIII.
“You call me Teacher and Lord … you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have set you an example, that you also should do as I have done to you” John 13:13-14

What’s your thoughts on this?

Is this to be a practice, a religious ritual, in our congregations today? How often? Is it to be something else?

How are you and I to “wash one another’s feet”?
