Description: Join us for Truthseekers' Thanksgiving in India Footwashing RalliesNovember 16-24, 2012Not that long ago, it was illegal for a lower-caste person to touch or even allow their shadow to fall upon a higher-caste person in India. While no longer illegal, this rigid physical segregation is still very much in force.Jesus showed us how to overcome barriers like this. He knelt down and washed the feet of His disciples. For the past four years, Truthseekers has modeled the example of Jesus each November. At our footwashing rallies, held in lower-caste neighborhoods, we tangibly express God's love as we wash the feet of the oppressed and abused.We will be taking a group of Westerners to India November 18-26, 2011 to continue the footwashing rallies that have been so successful the past several years, and you're invited!Here are the essential details:Sign up by September 23, 2012Space: Limited to a maximum of 30 persons.
