Join us for a Unity Service on Oct. 15th &

the Washing of Feet Event on Oct. 21st.

A Unity Service for Reconcile Dallas is scheduled for 6 p.m., October 15, at St. Matthew's Cathedral, 5100 Ross Ave., in Dallas.

As an act of love and reconciliation, a diverse group of Dallas area churches are uniting to wash the feet of children and provide them with a new pair of shoes on  October 21 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., ,  at St. Philip's School, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Dallas. 

"This is about bringing the city together," said the Rev. Kwesi R. Kamau. "This is about sitting in front of a child and asking, 'what is your name? What is your dream?' and telling that child that God has sent us to serve you, then taking off their shoes, washing their feet and putting new shoes on their feet. It's transforming for you and for the child. It will give us a new understanding of humanity, and bring people together from different factions, races, geography and religion. We need to be united but not in some kind of general, surface way, but at the feet of those who are most vulnerable." 

The event is part of a global initiative called Samaritan's Feet that aims to provide shoes to children as a foundation of a spiritually healthy life.  Since 2003, Samaritan’s Feet and its partners have distributed over 6.5 million pairs of shoes in 88 countries and 325 U.S. cities.
