God's Majesty and Our Human Dignity

By Sara Paasche-Orlow

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), December 2005

Paasche-Orlow grapples with the antiquated image of God as King and the more contemporary image of God as a godliness found in all human beings. Through her work at Hebrew SeniorLife, witnessing the struggles of people whose minds and bodies are betraying them, Paasche-Orlow finds that providing moments of dignity for the most vulnerable in our society is an opportunity that allows us to encounter the God inherent in the Other, uniting both images of God.
