That day, we're also going to set up to wash feet. We are compelled to offer feet washing again because we have been recently reminded of the significance of simply offering to wash another person's feet.Read More
One year ago tomorrow, my friend and mentor-by-example Larry James invited me down to South Dallas to spend time on a little corner we affectionately started calling "the Corner."
Neither he nor I knew it, but it would be a day that would forever change my life, as I began to have my heart warmed by a group of people I formerly ignored.

So you can imagine my own surprise to tell that we are planning to wash the feet of some homeless men and women on Saturday, June 21. By some, I mean whomever comes – be it one person or one hundred.Read More
