Joyful foolishness

“Joy is the most infallible sign of the presence of God.”

I don’t know who first wrote this – I’ve seen it referred to as a Portuguese proverb – but on April Fools Day

Anyway, “We are fools, for Christ’s sake.” (1 Corinthians 4: 10)

Do something foolish today, like washing another person’s feet. (John 13: 3-17)

This painting of the Washing of the Feet,
by the Master of Hausbuchs,
is in the Stattliche Museen, Berlin.


A very provocative painting and blog entry is "Would you wash bin Laden's feet?"
