John 13- Jesus washes the feet of his disciples

our bible lesson yesterday was on John 13 and the washing of the disciples feet. I honeslty think its a beautiful passage, of Jesus getting on his knees and washing and drying their feet and showing them such love and affection.Imagine what kindness he must have used, and how gentle his hands where on the feet of his beloved lambs. And it makes me think how gentle he is with us, how we are his beloved lambs too.


we traced our feet on paper and wrote John 13 on them and hung these on our Easter Tree.




we washed each others feet, and talked about giving and receiving and which is easiest. And why we need to be 'cleaned by Jesus, to be of Jesus'. how this is a spiritual cleansing not the actual body cleaning
, and how we where cleansed by the blood of Christ on the Christ.

Oh, I love how you washed each other's feet. I wanted to do that this year, and it just didn't happen. I'm hoping next year I can plan not to have so many things planned Easter week!

Just so precious!!!! Our priest on Holy Thursday washed 12 of our parishioners feet. It was a powerful visual of what Christ did the night before He was crucified.
