he knelt at the feet of his friends
his hands cupped gently
cradling each foot
as he quietly honoured each
washing dust off their feet.

as a host serves his guests
so he serves us
as he washed them clean
so he’s wiped away our sin

he kneels at the feet of his friends
gently cupping each foot
washing the dirt
from where they trod

wiping them clean
soft, like new
starting afresh
that’s what we must do.

Part of a larger stained glass window in St John’s Wagga Wagga, Australia, this small portion is nevertheless wonderful. The entire piece is the last supper, part of which is already on Red Bubble.

An avid photographer, both still and moving, since I was 10 years old, I later discovered and developed a particular love of macro, which is one of my main genres. More recently, however, my repertoire has broadened to include stained glass windows and particularly the stunning beauty of outback New South Wales and South Australia.
I hope you enjoy the beauty of the Creation, captured and presented here for you.

    this is gloriously beautiful and powerful.. love the words going with.. how wonderful .. the washing of feet.. I partook once of this, and i will never be the same.. bless!

  • Thank you so much Isa…I loved this corner of the window and thought it worthy of its own shot, for it stands on its own and I agree, makes a powerful statement.
    Having experienced the washing of the feet too, I know what you are saying, for it is a transformation experience.
    Bless you.

    Fantastic shot Jan…that sure is one beautiful stained glass window :))

  • I’ve found its actually worth using a tripod for such shots!! The result is a far clearer image and with a window such as this I felt it was important to give it my best.
    Many thanks for your wonderful affirmation and support my friend.

    I only dropped in here to look as I noticed it had been viewed by 185 people!!!:O
    I had not idea it was featured anywhere!!! Thank you so much. Mind you, this was probably years ago, as I have no idea when you left this comment for me Lisa. But bless you anyway.
