Foot-washing, or feet-washing, is a service that some churches stress as an ordinance laid out by Christ Himself and others view as a recommendation, but not a requirement of the faith. Personally, I think it is something that every Christian ought to partake in. So I'm curious what your church does in terms of foot-washing. Also, a question: If a member of your congregation chose, for whatever reason, to not take part in washing feet, do you believe they should also not take of the bread and the wine? Some churches do this, and some do not. I was just curious the thoughts of the BB on this? A few years ago I had bought a new pair of shoes just before the communion and footwashing service, and they wore a nasty blister on my foot (ick!). For that reason, I chose to abstain from footwashing, though I felt no compulsion to not take of the wine and bread.
