There is an unquestionable lightness when we voice the word “barefoot”. In our culture it bears the symbol of being carefree, lose, detached, and unencumbered.
The word and its image have gone through a radical transformation. In the earliest Biblical stories bare feet were a sign of subservience, poverty, and slavery. Add to that list the notion that those with bare feet were in deep lament or profound protest. Finally, layer onto all of this the idea that bare feet became the dress code when one stands on holy ground.
Feet take us places. Feet are the platform onto which our human pedestal is placed. Feet provide the foundation for our gyroscopic leanings. Feet are ticklish and tender.
Some fun foot facts…
25% of all the bones in the human body are in your feet.
The foot contains 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments, 19 muscles,
and 250,000 sweat glands which excrete as much as a half-pint of moisture a day.
Where our feet take us reveals our convictions, connections, values, and delights.
It’s the theme for summer University Chapel. Let your feet lead you to this place of holy ground where God speaks to us in song, through prayer, in the Word, and in the midst of other feet.
