William Barker tells of a church in the south with a sign Left Foot Baptist Church. It seems that years ago there was a split over which foot should be washed first during foot washing. The group which insisted on left, broke off and organized the LEFT FOOT BAPTIST CHURCH.As Sue quoted, how important it is to keep “Jesus priorities” above all else and bind it all with love and humility.
