Servicing one another, inside and out.
As in the icon, Washing Feet is Divine Service to one another.
The liturgy of washing feet is associated with the Lord’s Supper, referred to as the “Love Feast.” I gave myself permission to alter the sacred image to include women because of the Pope’s gesture. This icon is therefore not considered Orthodox because I have altered it from its tradition. The scroll held by the woman on the far right suggests the holy text can be adjusted to include women who were not included, documented, or understood. As a result of my epiphanies on these aspects of traditional iconography, I have altered many icons of principal events to include women. I believe it is time to re-frame our historic bias and transition rituals and sacraments to include gender equality for all of humanity.
