Washing feet?

Reading Vanier’s book on John. He talks about the profound gesture of washing each other’s feet as part of the community. I get the idea of humility, but it’s lost its practical significance. Jesus washed feet as a sign of humility and because feet were actually dirty from walking in the streets.

We should wash each other’s cars instead. Or weed. Or clean each other’s homes. Something that actually needs doing.
