“Why did your mama tell you not to wear socks with holes in them?” If you are around High Point FWC, it is because you might visit a Burmese home. When you walk up to the door of a Burmese home you can count their visitors by the shoes (or flipflops) on the porch. For Kay and I, it has become habitual to kick off our shoes at the door of a Burmese family.
When Moses encountered God in the wilderness, at the burning bush, he was enjoined to take off his shoes because he was on “holy ground”. Today when we visit with a Burmese family we are acting as Jesus would and we find ourselves on holy ground. Indeed in our congregation we are seeing ministry with the lame, the blind, the widows, the fatherless and the alien. What a privilege to follow Jesus in this way.
