Room In The Inn: Washing of Feet

Reflect on what it truly means to be in relationship and wash our neighbor's feet.


 

Christ washed the feet of his disciples - his friends and those whom he was in relationship with. Washing of feet was a sign of compassion and intentionality. It was an intimate act between two individuals without condition or agenda. 

It was simply an act of love.

We as believers in a God of love and grace are called to show that love and grace to those who need it most.  Through that call, we are transformed by one another.

 

  • How are we to build relationships with those who we don’t understand or misrepresent?

 

  • What are ways we can change society’s view of individuals who experience homelessness?

 

  • Why is it so hard for us to “wash the feet” of others?

 

  • Why is it so hard for us to let someone wash our own feet?

 

  • How do we welcome all to the table and truly be in relationship with one another?

Take Action


Room In The Inn: Washing of Feet

Here are some ways to take our reflection into action to help our siblings who are experiencing homelessness.


  • If you are located where Room In The Inn serves, volunteer with their amazing staff. Volunteer at the Foot Clinic, where individuals wash the feet of those who are experiencing homelessness.

 

  • Locate your local homeless outreach programs and get involved. Find out how your own church or organizations can also get involved.

 

  • Talk to people, not about them. Get to know individuals and their situations – don’t make assumptions.

 

  • Homelessness is a complex issue that involves many different factors.  In order to understand the issue completely, research what types of challenges result in homelessness.
