footwashing and faith

Doing this as a public post... A friend and I had a discussion in her LJ that meandered onto the topic of footwashing, and I promised a post here about the two most meaningful footwashing experiences I've had. I should preface it by explaining that my church does recognize an annual footwashing event. It is optional; and because there is great variation among congregations over matters like men washing women's feet, it is handled in various ways depending on where one goes to church. I don't have any outstanding memories of attending these events during my childhood, though I do remember teachings on footwashing. The practice in general has never seemed strange to me. It has been something I associate as part of my faith tradition. I do, however, understand and respect why many people find it disturbing and have difficulty applying it meaningfully to their own faith.
