Daily kindness

12 April 2013


THE Bishop of Brechin, Dr Nigel Peyton, was among the many bishops in the UK to spend part of Maundy Thursday cleaning the shoes of passers-by in a modern enactment of Jesus's washing of the feet of his disciples. It was in the pedestrian area of the city square in Dundee. He began with the boots of its famous "resident", Desperate Dan.

"We did this for the first time last year," he said. "This act of free shoe-cleaning has become a public prayer for all the people in Dundee, reminding us that we are all able to serve each other in a myriad of daily kindnesses."
