The Bible . . .
You know the story where Jesus washes his disciples’ feet?
Of course you do.
Surely you’ve also heard this as a metaphor for servitude.
The male preacher asks the Sunday school class, “Have you ever had your feet washed?” as if to imply that to wash another’s feet is the ultimate in humiliating experiences.
“Uh Yeah. A pedicure. Women pay others to wash their feet as a precious and luxurious taste of what HEAVEN feels like.”
The whole room looked at me like I was the one who was crazy.
