Washing feet

Sunday school activity Making paper mache And like a disciple or Jesus Playing the servant In turns Bent over plastic tubs Of soapy water A foggy memory Like blowing bubbles The towels were fluffy Terry cloth Recently someone said Jesus wore linen Toga party Like the Greek Gods? Wonder at the words that Aristole would whisper Wonder if T.S.Eliot would take the time to talk Wonder when Mr. Miller stopped believing The philosphoher, the poet and the playwright Have they ever played with clay?

Autumn, your sincerity in your questioning of your own belief, shines from the page like a shooting star. Probably my reaction is because I just read the bible verse about the woman who washed Christs feet and dried them with her unbound hair. Serendipity? Or maybe a message from on high? Anyway, WellDone, God Bless, Will
