Samaritan’s Feet treats seniors to foot washing & footwear
The Good Samaritan Society and Samaritan’s Feet International. Sounds like perfect partners for providing seniors with proper footwear.
“It’s all about the message of hope. Very similar to John 13, we are going to wash feet when we provide that message of hope with our seniors,” says Deborah Cox-Roush, manager of senior programs for Samaritan’s Feet International.
In John 13:14, Jesus says, “Now that I, your Lord and teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet.”
“Oh man, it kind of takes your breath away a little bit,” Nate Schema, Society president and CEO, says after washing a resident’s feet.
Jesus’ teachings, on display, at the independent living at Good Samaritan Society – Sioux Falls Village in South Dakota.
“We always talk about being the hands and feet of Jesus. To be able to sit down and meet Beverley (Halbritter) and be able to serve her in that very special way, it’s pretty humbling. Just fills your heart,” Nate says.
It also fills a need.
