Into the disorder of the week
he pours water in a basin
and wraps a towel around.
I like to imagine he got the idea from Mary Magdalene.
It was her gift to anoint his feet,
her tears pouring love,
her hair a towel of tender care.
“When Jesus came to Simon Peter, Peter said. ‘Rabbi, you’re not going to wash my feet, are you?” John 13:6
They didn’t understand the
of the moment,
but they will remember.
They will remember
not just water
but Love bending low
Love serving love
Great love splashing around their feet.
“You should wash each other’s feet.”
How might we spill Love today?
