Rev. Barbara Brown Taylor spoke at Thursday’s 9:15 a.m. Devotional Hour. Her topic was “Bathing Deep,” and her text was John 13:1-9. She described a class she taught with a Presbyterian minister named Liz. They were teaching about how faith is learned by what we do with our bodies.
“We talked about the usual rituals of baptism, talked about communion, talked about pilgrimages,” Taylor said. “We thought we would wrap up the week by doing a wordless foot washing — the act itself would teach us about our bodies and faith.
