What my hands did on Maundy Thursday

Embraced the shoulders of friends whose mother/grandmother had past away
Held the Bishop's bible as I read the gospel at her funeral
Kneaded communion bread
Grasped a broom handle and swept the church and front steps
Washed and dried feet-- baby feet, children's feet, old women's feet, feet that had survived massacres, feet that had fled from fighting, sturdy women's and men's feet, my husband's feet
Offered bread and wine to friends-- the body and blood of Christ
Held Vince's hand as we fell asleep
