Do you think Christian churches should include foot-washing during some services?


Just before Jesus was crucified, He washed His disciples' feet and He said we should wash each others' feet, but most churches say it's only a symbol, not something to be taken literally.

    This is one of the reasons why Pope Francis' example of washing the feet of Muslims and Prisoners is so important for modern Christians.It is a witness to our faith and to the life to which we are called.We are love those who harm or hate us.

    Thanks for your comment. I think it sad that some churches consider it just a symbol.

    Wow, where to start, perhaps the parable about swallowing the camel might help, though not likely.

    Thanks for your comment, blessedp. I've heard many sermons that justify why we should not wash each other's feet, but like you said, his baptism was a symbol and we do follow it. So was the breaking of the bread.
