FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The president of one of the nation's largest Southern Baptist seminaries washed the feet of a student during the school's fall convocation. Paige Patterson, former head of the Southern Baptist Convention, washed the feet of master's of theology student Anthony Moore during the Aug. 21 service at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth. In the Bible's Book of John, Jesus washes the feet of his disciples and urges them to do the same for others.

"If you have come to Southwestern with anything other in mind than to learn the ways of servanthood, to learn to be a slave to our Lord and to the church of the Lord Jesus Christ, which he bought with his own blood, then you have misunderstood the calling," Patterson said in his convocation message.
