Fearless love traversed Cobb County
500 pilgrims… 8 miles… Footwashing service with 12 immigrants’ feet washed by 12 U.S. citizens…
Three of the immigrants whose feet were washed were wearing monitoring anklets due to deportation proceedings. This sight is still difficult for me to comprehend. To see the hands of the privileged, submitting in imitation of the call to mutual submission that Jesus modeled the day before his execution, is a beautiful image. But to then see, immediately above the hands and feet a tracking monitor placed on a vulnerable migrant’s ankle is emotionally disturbing and spiritually jolting.
Here are photos of the full day of the pilgrimage as we journeyed from Smyrna to Marietta.
