In the upper room, in his final moments with his friends, Jesus decided that he would wash their feet. This was a gesture full of symbolism. He, having been their teacher and leader, would take the position of a servant. In doing so, Jesus worked to continue to undermine the stereotypical ideas of teachers and leaders that would often come to mind for his friends. The recounting of this moment, found in the book of John is often used for this purpose – to help us rethink the nature of leadership. However, this week I've been thinking about another aspect of the story...taking part with one another.
