Holy Thursday

Good theology, good liturgy

gives life,

expressing faith

through word and symbol.

I was delighted

when the Holy Thursday

foot washing ritual

was expanded.

Not only did priests

wash congregants’ feet

but those congregants

washed the feet of other congregants

and so on.

This lasted as long as the Holy Spirit

wanted it to last.

This action broke open the Gospel:

‘I have set you an example,

that you also should do as I have done to you’ (John 13:15)

for all gathered

in a powerfully inclusive manner.

I felt blessed to be present.
