MR No. 305—Foot-Washing and Fanatics

The excited man kneeling before Ellen said, “The Lord tells me, Sister White, that I must wash your feet.”

“The Lord tells me,” Ellen retorted quickly, “that you have no business with my feet at all. When my feet are washed, it will be by a sister, not by any man.”—Interview with E. G. White in Document File 733c, p. 4. (Portion of narrative related by Mrs. E. G. White.)

At first women and men washed [each other's] feet, and we felt that was not the right thing to do. I never could do it.—Interview with E. G. White in Document File 733c.

Released July 20, 1972.
