Description

This is one of the most comprehensive, contemporary statements which uses the Christian ritual of footwashing to develop an understanding of community for the church. From a study of St. John 13, it outlines the principles heralded by Jesus Christ for the development of the New Community. Not only does Kennedy focus on community building in the church, but he also develops the meaning of footwashing for community building in the home and the world.
