The Real Presence in Footwashing

Bill Leonard is a seasoned and brilliant Baptist historian who teaches Church History at the Divinity School of Wake Forest University. He is also a prolific writer and shares his thoughts on footwashing in this article. An excerpt: I have never participated in a footwashing service that did not transcend the moment. Somehow i always forget how overpowering an event it can be. The shear vulnerability of it carries participants beyond its anticipated logistical awkwardness to a palpable expression of servanthood.
