Wash my dirty feet, Lord

Jesus, my feet are dirty. Come even as a slave to me, pour water into your bowl, come and wash my feet. In asking such a thing I know I am overbold, but I dread what was threatened when you said to me, “If I do not wash your feet I have no fellowship with you.” Wash my feet then, because I long for your companionship.

—Origen (c. 185–254)

“Yoga is a spiritual practice, and can be a pathway to good physical health but has nothing to do with giving up one’s own religion.” Wexner Medical Center, Ohio State University

Science and the Bible

"In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." John 1:1. "Quantum physics is based on the idea that information can be created completely spontaneously, namely without any preexisting information." Sometimes these scientists try too hard to explain things.
